Ensuring low-income students and students of color have access to strong instruction is one of the most important things we can do to raise achievement and close gaps. To equip educators, advocates, and policymakers working to accomplish this goal, we:

  • Analyze data to identify where inequities exist.
  • Advocate for actions that schools, districts, states, and the federal government can take to get strong teachers in the classrooms of the low-income students and students of color who need them most. These actions include:
  • Learn from the work of teachers getting results for low-income students and students of color and share those lessons broadly
  • Help educators create high-quality assignments.
  • Support a network of districts that are implementing plans to attract, develop, and retain teachers in high-need schools.
