Our Approach

We believe that educator preparation plays a vital role in ensuring that every child in this country receives an excellent education. Achieving that vision means working alongside leaders at all levels of educator preparation – including deans, directors of teacher education, clinical faculty, school district partners, and others – to prepare beginning teachers who are good on day one, and on the path to be great over time.


What We Do

We focus our support in three areas:

Empower Leaders

We empower leaders in educator preparation to design rigorous, coherent experiences for every teacher-candidate they prepare.


Gather Common Evidence

We help educator-preparation programs gather common evidence on the knowledge and skills of their teacher-candidates and on program performance, and to use this data to improve.

Influence Policy

We advocate for policies that will help leaders improve their programs, with a focus on outcomes data.
