2016 OEA Symposium

OEA’s 6th Annual Education Symposium brought together educators and education partners from around the state for a day of deep conversation, questioning, and collaboration. The focus of the day — accountability for student learning and success: a shared responsibility of educators, families and education partners — asked participants to think about what it would take to create the schools our students deserve.

Participants heard from a panel of education leaders that included state policy makers and teachers in the field. In breakout sessions, they looked at what elements that lead to student, school and educator success are in place in Oregon and what could help to improve our system.
