New Playbook: Building a Strong and Diverse Teaching Profession
Recent years have been a roller coaster for teachers and schools. Districts have been challenged to recruit and retain teachers more than ever. But with significant dollars going to states and districts through the the American Rescue Plan Act and the American Families Plan, there are new opportunities to invest in teachers in the years ahead.
The Teaching Profession Playbook from the Partnership for the Future of Learning offers a comprehensive set of strategies that work together to recruit, prepare, develop, and retain high-quality teachers and bring greater racial, ethnic, and linguistic diversity to the profession.
Read it cover to cover or, depending on your local or state circumstance, explore a single chapter or strategy. Additional resources include examples of legislation; a curated list of publications, by topic, for further reading; a guide for messaging about teacher shortages and strengthening the profession; and examples of research-based policies.
Inside, find local and state strategies that are showing results.
