Supporting Professional Learning for Teachers
We invest in efforts to provide teachers with ongoing professional learning that enables them to deliver culturally responsive instruction, as well as scalable efforts to deliver high-quality professional learning for teachers.
Investing in High-Quality Instructional Materials
We support the development of high-quality instructional materials that allow teachers to focus their time, energy and creativity on engaging their students. Specifically, we invest in developing free, publicly available instructional materials that are standards-aligned and culturally inclusive.
Creating Place-Based Partnerships
We invest in states, select school systems, and district and charter public schools to help them foster high-quality professional learning systems for teachers and culturally relevant and academically rigorous learning environments for students. We also support networks of districts and states focused on adopting and implementing high-quality instructional materials.
Investing in Targeted Research
To help scale this work, we support efforts to build the field’s knowledge about the specific activities and conditions that support teachers in creating the best possible classroom experience for their students.
Funding Computer Science Education Programs
We support opportunities for girls and students of color to develop skills in computer science so they can have future pathways to thrive in a growing segment of our economy.
