In this paper commissioned by the Ford Foundation, Barnett Berry makes the case for how a system of teacher leadership and learning can fuel deeper learning for every student.

Here is what the paper tackles:

  • examines current reforms’ limitations and notes some promising emergent examples, (like Social Justice Humanitas Academy in LAUSD);
  • summarizes 30 years of research about how teachers learn and lead (also drawing on stories of teachers CTQ has worked with since our founding in 1998);
  • identifies three promising shifts that could be leveraged to create an effective system of teacher leadership and learning; and
  • describes next steps that stakeholders (including policymakers, USDOE, state education leaders, superintendents, and others) can take to advance teacher leadership toward a more equitable public education system.
