U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. will engage educators across the nation in a live virtual discussion today, Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. EDT. The chat, “Supporting Educators: A Live Video Chat with Secretary King,” will focus on how federal funding (Title II, Part A) can be used at the state and district levels to support teacher and principal diversity, training and hiring, and professional development.” King, a former educator, will listen as educators share best practices and what works on the ground in their communities, as well as discuss the Department’s efforts to promote and support teacher leadership to improve learning for all students.

In addition to Title II, Part A, the Department supports teachers through numerous grant programs and initiatives. Its policies and grant programs related to teachers and school leaders are driven by the understanding that educators must be partners in—and help to lead—progress in our nation’s public schools.
