Excellent teachers and leaders for every child

We believe that every stu­dent deserves a pas­sion­ate and high­ly effec­tive teacher. A democ­ra­cy requires that the teach­ing pro­fes­sion be a high­ly val­ued pro­fes­sion, there­fore, it is crit­i­cal to devel­op a pipeline of well-trained, high­ly com­pen­sat­ed and appro­pri­ate­ly sup­port­ed teach­ers who reflect the stu­dents com­mu­ni­ties they serve. 

Our recommendations

Incen­tivize teacher prepa­ra­tion pro­grams to recruit and grad­u­ate diverse stu­dents.
Cre­ate pro­tect­ed time for teacher plan­ning and col­lab­o­ra­tion.
Cre­ate dis­cre­tionary fund­ing for dis­tricts with grow­ing Eng­lish Lan­guage Learn­er pop­u­la­tions to use on direct ser­vice for kids and
fam­i­lies.
