Teacher Powered School

In teacher-powered schools, teachers have greater ability to make the dramatic changes that they determine are needed to truly improve student learning and the teaching profession—changes such as:

  • Personalizing learning for both students and teachers
  • Addressing “teacher quality” issues by making teaching a more attractive job and career
  • Increasing the sense of ownership—and accountability—among teachers, in areas where they have authority to make decisions
  • Collaborating with administrators to boost student achievement and advance authentic assessment
