Teaching Matters serves more than 200 schools per year. We stand out among other groups trying to raise teacher performance because of our commitment to the public interest, and our nearly two decades of experience fighting for urban students’ futures.

"I’m grateful to Teaching Matters for the wonderful work that you’re doing in New York, and the model that you’re setting for people all across the country."

- Professor Linda Darling Hammond
