The more teachers learn, the more students learn.

We believe ongoing, high-quality professional learning is an integral part of a holistic support system that empowers educators to engage students and help them succeed.

We invest in:

  • Organizations that provide teachers with coaching, mentoring, leadership development and other collaborative learning opportunities throughout their careers;
  • Professional learning that enables teachers to use instructional materials skillfully and to deliver culturally responsive instruction;
  • Scalable efforts to deliver high-quality professional learning for teachers; and  
  • Building the capacity of schools and school systems to develop their teachers and other instructional leaders.

Through this work and targeted research, we seek to build the field’s knowledge about the specific activities and conditions that help teachers create the best possible classroom experience for their students.
