For Us, Teacher Leadership = Teacher-Powered Schools

Our concept of teacher leadership is not about bringing “teacher voice” into a top-down policymaking and management process or giving teachers more “career pathways” within that structure.

Instead, we work to move final decision-making authority in schools into the hands of the professionals who know students best—the teachers.

We call schools like these teacher-powered schools.
