Rural Teachers to Share Perspectives with UW–Madison Education Researchers

April 26, 2017

Nine public school teachers from seven rural districts around Wisconsin will share their experiences with university researchers at the first-ever Teacher Speakout! Monday, May 15, at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

The teachers will lead a panel discussion about their classroom experiences and then exchange ideas about education in rural areas with faculty, staff and students from UW–Madison’s Wisconsin Center for Education Research and School of Education.

The teachers—all alumni of UW-Madison—are coming from these school districts: Barneveld, La Farge, Markesan, Mauston, Mercer, Phillips and River Valley. At least two legislators representing these districts plan to attend.

Portions of the event in the Education Building, 1000 Bascom Mall, are open to the public, but registration is required.
