Modernizing and Elevating the Teaching Profession

The K-12 Education team recognizes that no education reform effort can be successful without teachers. High-quality teaching is essential to all efforts to improve students’ learning and has the greatest impact for students who are mostly likely to start school behind their peers academically. For too long, teachers have been an afterthought, underpaid and undervalued. We are working to modernize and elevate the teaching profession so that teachers receive the training, pay, and respect they deserve, and every student has access to high-quality teachers.See the K-12 Education team’s other core priority areas:

  1. Racial Equity and Community-Informed Policies
  2. College, Career, and Civic Readiness
  3. Investment and Funding Equity for Public Education
