TalkNCSS: DC Social Studies Teachers Leading Teachers

One of the biggest issues educators point to with the way states and the federal governments make policy decisions is the lack of teacher input in crafting those decisions. Furthermore, most teachers believe that there is a clear disconnect between the “powers that be” and their classrooms. For a group of D.C. public school teachers, leading their colleagues has become a priority not because they want to clarify policy, but because they know it will lead to better instruction and to a better education for their students. In doing so, they're proving that teacher leaders don't wait for a set of directives to act, but instead act because they know their work is right course of action.
