Bridgeville, N.Y. – Bill Daggett, Ed.D., the founder and chairman of the International Center for Leadership in Education, will be the keynote speaker at a Dec. 19 breakfast seminar at The Sullivan in Rock Hill, presented by the Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development and the Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development.
Dr. Daggett, recognized worldwide for his proven ability to move preK-12 education systems towards more relevant skills and knowledge, will address the changes necessary in the current education model in America to prepare students for success in a global economy. The breakfast seminar, “Preparing Students for Future Workforce Demands,” is ideal for those in the educational field (teachers, administrators, board members), those in workforce development, and business leaders.
“The education model currently used is the same one used generations ago when the majority of the children went on to work on an assembly line,” Marc Baez, president/CEO of the Sullivan County Partnership, said. “With the prospect of extraordinary development in Sullivan County’s future, it is more important than ever that our children are armed with dramatically different skills, knowledge, and attitudes to do well in the technological, globally driven world in which they will live and work.”
Attendees will learn specific strategies the nation’s most rapidly improving schools have developed, and the blueprint they used to meet these challenges successfully. Dr. Daggett will lay out why these schools have made these changes, and how the impact they have on curriculum and instruction yields results. Dr. Daggett has collaborated with education ministries in several countries and with the Council of Chief State School Officers, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Governors Association, and many other national organizations.
