A group of 12 teachers, including six National Board Certified Teachers, was disappointed with a phone call with Education Secretary Arne Duncan and other Education Department officials that took place Monday, according to NBCT and blogger Anthony Cody. Cody, who organized the effort, said Duncan and others spoke to teachers rather than ask them for feedback on education reforms. However, NBCT Mary Tedrow spoke to Duncan on the call about the need to support professional-development programs such as National Board Certification, which Duncan agreed with.
