Teacher Leadership as a Key to Education Innovation: Action Steps and Promising Strategies for State, District, and University Officials


This fall, a brief was released that identifies teacher leadership as an imperative to educational innovation. Now more than ever, policymakers and higher education institutions are looking to build upon years of "behind the scenes" teacher practices to create formalized teacher-leader roles throughout the profession.

The National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality released this brief as "a call to action." Teacher leadership is linked to the retention of highly qualified professionals and, ultimately, successful schools. When viewed as an aspect of overall staffing models, discussions concerning teacher leadership can provide the springboard to meaningful systems change.
