K-12 education corresponds to primary and secondary education in the US and other parts of the world such as Canada and Australia. In the United States, about 87% of students attend public schools, 10% are enrolled in private schools, and 3% are home-schooled.
THE NEED FOR QUALITY EDUCATION
The United States spends more on education than any other country. However, the Pearson/Economist Intelligence Unit rated education in the United States only 14th in the world. On the other hand, the Programme for International Student Assessment ranked US high school students in the US 40th in Math and 24th in Science and Reading. These figures highlight the need to improve the quality of K-12 education.
INCOMPASSING EDUCATION: HIGH-QUALITY PD FOR K-12 EDUCATORS
One way to improve K-12 education is through professional development or educational consulting. INcompassing Education provides professional development training in Indiana and other states in the US. Our objective is to promote growth in the educational system by guiding teachers, educators, and school administrators.
INcompassing Education conducts professional development in three ways: on-site PD, off-site PD, and online PD.
- On- site PD – Our team of experienced and highly qualified educators can do on-site professional development at your school or educational institution. We can design a customized program according to the specific needs of your school/district.
- Off-site PD – INcompassing Education also conducts training, workshops, and custom PD events for the entire teaching staff. We cover topics such as teaching practices, classroom tools, and ways to attain better outcomes for students.
- Online PD – Through our Lounge & Learn sessions, you can choose topics that you want and sign up. It is designed for busy educators who want to enhance their teaching knowledge and skills. Participants can watch the sessions in real-time, regardless of location. If you can’t attend live sessions, you can watch recorded Lounge & Learn sessions for a minimal fee. Convenient and accessible – these are the words that best describe our online PD.
