Slideshow: GOOD, Education Experts Talk High Expectations

Photos from last night's GOOD Education Event. The topic of the night: Getting students to set high expectations.

On three Thursdays over the past month—at our kickoff event on August 19, our discussion about enabling creativity on September 9, and our discussion about content on September 16—we've gathered to talk about ensuring that all kids are on track to receive the 21st century education they deserve.

Yesterday's final panel focused on how to urge students to set high expectations for academic achievement. The panelists were: JB Schramm (College Summit), Estelle Reyes (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship), Paul Miller (Teach for America), and Steve Zimmer (Board of Education, LAUSD)


Check out our slideshow of photos from last night's event. And thanks to everyone who came out for any or all of the GOOD education events. You made them a resounding success and got us really excited about the hard (but rewarding) work ahead of all of us.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
