Author Donna Foote, whose most recent book "Relentless Pursuit" chronicled the professional lives of four Teach for America teachers at Locke High School in L.A., moderates this panel focused on the education of teachers. Thomas Lasley, dean of the University of Dayton's education school, and Michael Whitmore, representing Chicago's teacher residency program, round out the panel.

About 35 reporters from across the country attended the session, which was part of EWA's regional seminar "Teaching to a New Nation" held Sept. 19-20 at Chicago Public Radio.
