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 consistent, built-in time for planning and collaboration
- Schools meet Opportunity Culture Principles, so that roles and pay are sustainable, scalable and high-impact.
