Teacher Leadership: The Pathway to Common Core Success
This report, by the Center for American Progress, focuses on collaborative approaches to address the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The report describes districts throughout the country that have taken approaches between management and unions to ensure that teachers have significant voice and leadership in implementation of the CCSS. The districts in this report vary in size, location, student demographics, socio-economic status, and student academic performance, but all have worked to give teachers a meaningful voice in decision-making during the implementation of the CCSS. While the specifics and nature of individual collaborative systems vary, similar types of teacher leadership opportunities are available in each district.
