Temple University’s College of Education, led by member dean Greg Anderson, knows what it wants: for teacher-candidates to ground their instructional decision-making in the science of how students learn. Figuring out how to achieve that is what the College has been tackling as part of Dean for Impact’s Design for Practice Network.

American Street, Philadelphia.
Sarah Cordes, a professor of educational leadership policy at Temple University in Philadelphia, asserts that the most pressing problem in education finance is not funding sources. It is the fact that Pennsylvania is one of the few states that do not have an education funding formula that allocates state funds based on the current characteristics of a district—for example, a district’s wealth, student characteristics, and changes in different categories of enrollment.
