This article is part of larger website Teachers know best including the first US forum on Education in WA last month where they say the 5 big take-aways were

1. Education is the bridge to opportunity.

2. Listen to the people that education affects most.

3. To be great, teachers need feedback.

4. It’s time to transform higher education.

5. Pay more attention to early learning.
