"Cut a new deal with teachers: in exchange for real accountability we’ll give you real authority."

  • A list of schools with teacher autonomy, with links to profiles of each school describing the nature of the autonomy and the kinds of learning programs teachers create. Some include photos.
  • A nationwide map, pinpointing the locations of schools with teacher autonomy.

Teacher autonomy arrangements are about putting the professionals in charge. They stand in contrast to improvement strategies that cast teachers as the problem.

Education|Evolving Founder Ted Kolderie has encouraged a strong look at our current management approach. “Our deal with teachers has been that we don’t give you professional authority, and you don’t give us accountability. Cut a new deal: in exchange for real accountability we’ll give you real authority.”

When teachers have collective authority to control the factors that influence school success, they will accept responsibility for it.
