U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan met with nearly 850 Baltimore County Public Schools' language arts teachers during a special visit to Perry Hall High School on Wednesday, August 22, 2012. Joined by BCPS Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance and Maryland State Superintendent Dr. Lillian M. Lowery, Secretary Duncan discussed the future of teaching and the teaching profession at the start of a day of professional development activities.

Following his remarks and a question and answer period, many of the BCPS teachers participated in group discussions with Teacher Ambassador Fellows from the U.S. Department of Education about that agency's RESPECT Project.

The goal of the RESPECT Project (Recognizing Educational Success, Professional Excellence and Collaborative Teaching) is to work with teachers, school and district leaders, teachers' associations and unions, and state and national education organizations to spark a dialogue that results in strong policy and a sustainable transformation of the teaching profession.
