Teach to Lead

Program Description

Teach to Lead is a partnership of the U.S. Department of Education, ASCD and Teach Plus. Teach to Lead envisions a world in which teachers are valued as the foremost experts in instruction, and as such, are leaders of informing, developing, and implementing education policy and practice to steer systematic improvements to benefit student learning. Launched in March 2014, Teach to Lead was designed and is led by teachers. To date, 18 summits have taken place all over the nation supporting 453 teacher leadership projects. To create systemic and sustained change, Teach to Lead involves and encourages collaboration among stakeholders at every level of education. We are proud to be joined by over 180 diverse Supporting Organizations that also believe the power of teacher leadership and innovation.
