Minnesota takes the lead for Teacher-Powered Schools
The public supports ensuring that those closest to student learning — teachers — have the tools and authority to help their students and each other meet the growing demands of a 21st century, world-class education. The new Teacher-Powered Schools Initiative aims to catapult that idea, which has already taken root in more than 15 schools across Minnesota, into the national debate.
Today, there are roughly 60 schools across the country where teams of teachers have secured the autonomy to lead their schools and work closely with parents and the broader community to ensure their student's success.
