Governors, state legislators and researchers gathered here last month to debate new federal education legislation, share ideas on recruiting better teachers and reflect on the legacy of the groundbreaking 'A Nation at Risk,' report issued 20 years ago. The National Forum on Education Policy, organized by the Denver, Colorado-based Education Commission of the States, drew more than 500 education policymakers to the group's annual national gathering July 13-16. Improving teacher quality and finding more teachers to fill often hard-to-staff urban and rural schools emerged as one of the most important themes at the conference. A panel of academics and education leaders also reflected on the legacy of the report presented at the conference.
