Teachers21 recently signed a letter addressed to Congressional leaders in support of Teach To Lead, an initiative providing opportunities for teachers to use their expertise to improve instruction and exercise leadership without having to leave the classroom. Teachers21 strongly endorses the idea that teacher leadership is an underutilized resource within many learning communities.
Endorsed by 30 organizations, the letter was shared with the House Appropriations Committee during Teacher Appreciation Week. Last week an identical letter was also sent to Senate appropriators. You can read a copy of the letter here.
