Educators 4 Excellence Co-CEO Evan Stone took time out to chat with the Core about educators and his work to broaden their base of resources. Evan attended a small private school, as a youth, in California and quickly experienced the achievement gap when his best friend was unable to attend the same school and experienced a wildly different education in the public sector. Stone wanted to address this issue in college and eventually taught for Teach for America at the largest elementary school in NY at PS 86 in the Bronx.
“Learn, Network and Take Action”-Evan Stone
E4E emerged from these experiences and began to establish a platform for teachers to recognize their voice and serve as the experts in schools as originally intended. E4E has been around for over three years and has approximately 13,000 members. Stone talks about the misconceptions of teachers in the U.S. and shares his thoughts on how we can better support teachers and how teacher evaluation impacts staffs as a whole.
