Teaching Policy Fellowship

The goal of our policy work is to ensure that teachers have a voice in the public policy decisions that affect their classrooms.  

We equip teachers to be heard through our Teaching Policy Fellowship, a highly selective, rigorous program for teachers who want to deepen their knowledge in education policy.  The program offers excellent teachers the opportunity to expand their influence without leaving the classroom.  During the program, the Fellows receive extensive training on topics such as policy, advocacy, storytelling, and op-ed writing. The Fellows engage directly with key education stakeholders and policy makers, shaping and advocating for policies that meet the needs of their students


Skills-building, reading, and research on education policy and advocacy structured like a graduate school course.


Small group meetings with top leaders where we break down barriers between teachers and decision-makers.


Advocacy working groups where Fellows take on issues and work to make changes to benefit their students.
