An equitable education begins where support matters most: in the classroom.
At Teaching Matters, we work with schools to enrich professional learning for educators that is evidence-based, culturally responsive, and proven to increase teacher effectiveness. As a result, more students access excellent teaching and we build more equitable classrooms in the face of a radically unequal education system.
Opportunity gaps in the American education system harm millions of students, predominantly in low-income, Black, and Latino communities. By collaborating with school communities to grow teacher capacity and improve student outcomes, we help close the opportunity gap for under-served and historically marginalized children.
