Teaching Matters. That is not only our name, but our profound belief, and the belief of our founder, the late Elizabeth Rohatyn. In its eighth year, the Elizabeth Rohatyn Prize for Schools Where Teaching Matters will award $25,000 to a public school that advances opportunities for students by positioning teachers to lead, learn, and thrive.
