Tackling Teacher Workforce Challenges in Wisconsin

Virtual event | September 29, 2023 | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Join us Friday, September 29, for our popular virtual event series, Forum Friday – with this installment focusing on teacher workforce challenges in Wisconsin.

We’ll begin the program by presenting our new research on teacher turnover. Then we’ll interview Wisconsin’s top K-12 administrator, State Superintendent Jill Underly, to get her views.

We’ll follow that up with a discussion with two more panelists with expertise in the areas of teacher certification, recruitment, and professional development. Also included in this conversation: the role of traditional educator prep programs, and the challenges of attracting students to education programs and the teaching profession.

Our Forum Friday guests will be:


Jill Underly
State Superintendent
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

Desiree Pointer Mace
Director of Graduate Programs and Professor of Education
Alverno College

Laci Coppins Robbins
Executive Director

Urban Learning Collaborative

As always, we’ll conclude with a Q&A session for registered participants. Registration is free, but required for this event.
