HIGH-QUALITY, RESPECTED AND SUPPORTED TEACHING.
Teaching is a career, not a temporary stop on the way to another one. Students succeed when teachers are well-trained, trusted and given the opportunity to be leaders in their schools and classrooms.
- Class size matters. Lower class size allows teachers to customize instruction and provide individualized attention to each student, which is especially important in struggling schools.
- Continued Education and Professional Support. Teachers should have access to training tailored to their specific needs- and have adequate time to plan lessons targeted to the learning needs of all students they teach.
- Educator Voice. Educators will feel free to advocate for students, reasonable class sizes, time for students to learn, and compensation only when they can do so protected from retribution.
