This special event will be held on Sunday, September 25th, and broadcast live on MSNBC at Noon/ET. Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of "NBC Nightly News," will moderate the discussion with help from MSNBC's Tamron Hall, who will facilitate questions from the audience. NBC News' Chief Education Correspondent Rehema Ellis will be moderating and reporting an online conversation with teachers across the country during the two-hour live event.
The program will focus on the most important challenges and opportunities facing America's teachers, and feature examples of great teaching from various schools and classrooms across the country.
As hundreds of teachers get together in-person at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, NBC News is also inviting teachers from across the country to join the conversation online. We'll be hosting a live chat during the Teacher Town Hall in our NEW "Teachers' Lounge", EducationNation.com's teachers-only online forum.
