Teacher Collaboration: Worth Fighting For (Public Agenda)

With support from the Spencer Foundation, Public Agenda examined existing research on teacher collaboration as it relates to student success and improved teacher happiness and instruction. Three resources were then created as part of the "Teacher Collaboration In-Perspective" project ( How can we strengthen and sustain collaboration in districts, schools, and Classrooms?
The research shows that teacher collaboration can improve student outcomes and reduce teacher turnover. But, as teachers know, creating and sustaining an environment for effective collaboration can be a difficult task. Your colleagues at Public Agenda think these free resources can help.
About the Project: "Teacher Collaboration In Perspective" is designed to contribute to a better-informed dialogue about how teachers can work more collaboratively. The In Perspective series provides an analysis of current research; suggests important questions for policymakers and journalists to ask; and offers discussion material to inform voters and help communities hold civil, productive dialogue on education issues. In Perspective is a joint project of the Spencer Foundation and Public Agenda, both nonpartisan organizations.
