Overview
The National Commission on Teaching & America’s Future develops visions for teaching practice and policy; advocates for quality teaching through work with national, state, and local education agencies that develop prototypes for improved teacher preparation and organization; and conducts outreach to those who influence education legislation and policy. Through past research, the commission has identified ways to encourage teaching that cultivates deeper student learning; now it will develop a multistate network to implement these conditions and systems. This work will advance the Education Program’s goals to support best instructional policies and practices.
