About this Video

Jesse Solomon argues that teaching is too hard a job to do alone. Rather, if we are to achieve the lofty aim of educating all children to high levels, we need to learn from medicine and other fields to reorganize teachers and teaching in ways that enable teams of adults to meet all children’s needs.

Jesse Solomon is the founder of the Boston Teacher Residency program, a national pioneer in teacher preparation.
