What would the local and global futures of education look like if teachers and their organizations were leading innovation in assessment practices, processes and policies?

Rather than simply waiting out the current global crisis and a return to some semblance of order, a new collaborative, the Education Futures Project, (EFP) has formed to seize this time for the profession globally to reimagine and enact new ways to engage with policies harming teachers and education at all levels.  The initial impetus for forming the network took place two years with  union leaders and researchers from Australia, Norway, New Zealand, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom recognizing their shared stake in turning back neoliberal and accountability-driven policies.  A report summarizing the group's aims can be found here

Researchers for teachers unions are invited to 90-minute online meeting to review a proposal for a collaborative research initiative as well as exploring ways to build the EFP network.
