Grants to this Grantee
for improving teaching practice through National Board certification  
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards works to advance the quality of teaching and learning by maintaining high and rigorous standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do, and by managing a national credentialing system certifying teachers who meet these standards. These standards directly align with the standards that the Hewlett Foundation has identified as necessary for deeper learning. This grant will support the board to drive deeper learning for students by (a) exploring what it takes to embed accomplished teaching practices in schools and systems and (b) building an evidence base, codifying these learnings, and spreading them to more places.
