Research shows that teacher effectiveness is the most important in-school factor influencing student achievement. But we learned that helping district leaders provide coherent support for high quality instruction can help create “tailwinds” behind teachers for more student learning.Read More
As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, our primary concern is helping ensure equitable opportunity for all students.
Working alongside schools, we’ve learned that great teaching is grounded in standards, data, and insights shared among educators. We believe a blog can help us make a difference by spreading the ideas and effective practices of educators we work with.
We’re proud of the expertise our team has built over our ten years, and we'll be featuring contributions from ANetters across the org on topics in which they’ve immersed themselves.
Help us spread opportunity for all students: please share posts that you find valuable with your colleagues. And please add your thoughts in the comments: we would love this blog to facilitate knowledge-sharing in all directions.
