Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession
The Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP) supports student achievement through a focus on teaching excellence. We don’t believe good teaching happens by accident, but that high-quality teaching occurs when there is a strong system and a strong profession that supports teachers.
Our priorities, which also remain the same, have guided the work we do:
- Teacher Leadership: CSTP provides teachers with opportunities to develop leadership skills and contribute to policy decisions
- Policy and Dialogue: CSTP engages the public in dialogue with the education community that is centered on powerful learning for all students
- Research: CSTP commissions research and builds capacity for using data to inform policy discussions and decision-making
