Teacher-powered schools are transforming the eduscape.

In at least 15 states, teacher teams have secured collective autonomy from their districts, charter authorizers, and unions to design and run their own schools. Pioneering teachers are leading more than 60 schools across the country right now.

This practical resource, created by the Center for Teaching Quality and hosted by the Teacher Powered Schools Initiative, draws on the experiences of teachers who’ve been there, done that. You can learn from their mistakes—and build on their successes—as your team sets out on an innovative journey.
