Teach to Lead® envisions a world where teachers are valued as experts in instruction and are leaders in informing, developing, and implementing education policy and practice to steer systematic improvements to benefit student learning.
Launched in March 2014 by the U.S. Department of Education, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and ASCD, Teach to Lead has been teacher-designed and led from the inception.
“Teacher Leadership means working with shared responsibility to help students achieve their dreams.”
– Heard at the Long Beach Teach to Lead Summit
To create systemic and sustained change, Teach to Lead involves and encourages collaboration among stakeholders at every level of education. We are proud to be joined by nearly 150 diverse Supporting Organizations.
These organizations represent a wide range of public, private, non-profit service and advocacy-focused constituents at all levels of the education system and all see the power of teacher-leadership as key to best serving America’s students.
