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
