Policy & Research

Thought leadership to transform teaching

CTQ started out in 1998 as a think tank to advance the teaching profession. Today, we're more of an action tank... with a strong research pedigree.

We continue to identify and analyze empirical evidence of the factors that matter most in improving teaching and learning. And we prepare teachers to integrate research, policy, and their own experiences as they advocate for students.
