Gainesville, FL Oct. 6, 2017 – On October 11, Bill Latham, CEO of MeTEOR Education, a leading educational services partner, and the co-author of the book Humanizing the Education Machine, will lead a national discussion on the ways in which district and school leaders can tackle the reasons why some schools succeed and why so many schools continue to fall behind.

According to research:

·50 percent of students are at risk and continue to be in spite of many district/state initiatives

·Over 70 percent of change initiatives fail

·Failing schools continue to fail based on zip code

·65 percent of jobs in the future have not been invented yet, but less than 10 percent of schools are “future ready”

Participants will come away with three critical priority strategies that focus on implementing change in their schools, districts and communities.

Presenter Bill Latham has consulted with schools, districts and governmental agencies across the Western Hemisphere for the past 15 years on the design, equipping and implementation of classroom and school environments aligned to critical learning priorities. He and his team have directly served more than 1,000 schools in the United States alone. Latham is a leading global advocate for the constant, consistent support of best-practice instruction through living classroom environments. He and his team’s designs have produced measurable increases in basic literacy, collaborative learning and complexity of student tasks at all grade levels. Latham is connected with leading global researchers and academics in the field, employing the latest best practice findings as he leads design work for classrooms, school buildings and broader school systems.

There is no cost to join the webinar, but registration is required. Registrants will receive a link to the recorded session and the first 20 attendees will receive a copy of Humanizing the Education Machine. For more information, go to http://lp.meteoreducation.com/humanizing-webinar.
