The Sydney School of Education and Social Work in partnership with the Australian Education Union and the Australian College of Educators invites you to an evening with Professor Linda Darling-Hammond of Stanford University, USA. As the US experiences significant 'educational reform', Darling-Hammond will provide us with insights into lessons from the US which could make all the difference to our future.

"Bureaucratic solutions to problems of practice will always fail because effective teaching is not routine, students are not passive, and questions of practice are not simple, predictable, or standardized. Consequently, instructional decisions cannot be formulated on high then packaged and handed down to teachers."
– from her award-winning book, The Right to Learn (1997)
