What Helps Teachers Improve & Grow?

It seems intuitive that if we are expecting more from our students today, we are also expecting more from our teachers.  We also believe that when teachers improve their instructional practice it will result in student growth.

But what do we really know about what professional development results in the best outcomes for students?  This new report from The New Teacher Project challenges the assumption that we know what works and concludes that there are no quick fix solutions.  At the same time, it encourages all who want to support teacher development to engage with school district leaders and local teachers to bring fresh thinking to the important topic.

The CFEF will offer support to member foundations that are ready to step into this arena in the coming year.  Stay tuned!
