“We’re still talking and fighting about the same things,” former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise said during the closing keynote session of the FETC 2015 conference, held last week in Orlando, FL. “The next two or three years will be some of the most critical for education in our lifetime.” Wise is president of the nonprofit Alliance for Excellent Education, which pushes for improvements to American high schools so every student graduates ready to enter college and thrive in a career. The group also advocates for the states that have adopted Common Core State Standards for education. At the convention where educators learned about the newest software, hardware and teaching techniques, Wise spoke about smoothing the path to a better future. While advances in education technology have exploded, Wise said, decisions on how to use that technology and whether to purchase it are unresolved.
