An Opportunity Culture for Teachers =
Support, Collaboration, Greater Impact, Higher Pay
In an Opportunity Culture:
- Great teachers can extend their reach to more students and lead teaching teams without leaving the classroom—for more pay, from regular budgets, not grants that will go away
- All teachers have the chance to earn more, learn more, and advance
- All teachers can focus on the on-the-job support and development everyone deserves, with powerful, consistent, built-in time for planning and collaboration
Opportunity Culture schools must meet our Opportunity Culture Principles, which help ensure that roles extending the reach of excellent teachers to far more students, and to their colleagues, are sustainable and effective.
Teachers across the country are already experiencing this—watch and listen to what they say about their Opportunity Culture jobs.
