School Improvement Network In 1991, teachers John and Blanch Linton, saw a need for better professional development for educators. In an effort to serve this important community, they began to network with a few educational experts throughout the United States and Canada to develop a Video Journal of Education that would highlight how quality and effective education of young people really happens. Though marked by several challenges, their overwhelming success has now fostered the School Improvement Network. Their Video Journal of Education that was posted online many years ago, is now known as PD 360 and continues to be inundated with strategies and best practices that are meeting the needs of over 700,000 of today’s educators. New content is added every month to stay on top of all the issues that arise in today’s classroom. Additionally, tools for classroom observation, Common Core Standards, equity in education, and Title I schools have become a core component of this invaluable resource.
