U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education Cindy Marten visited Mesa Westwood High School this week to learn about the Next Education Workforce initiative developed by ASU. Westwood is one of 50 schools across 10 school systems that have put into practice the team-teaching approach, which was born out of conversations school officials had five years ago with leaders from ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.
