It is our view that education research should dramatically expand its focus to understand whether, how and why leadership at all levels affects outcomes in education. In fact, the presence of leadership might be the single most important element for ensuring that other educational interventions are implemented properly and sustained over time.

To address the educational needs of refugees, local Teach For All partner organizations and Deutsche Post DHL Group are working to provide teaching and financial resources in refugee host countries. Teach For All’s network partners in Lebanon, Germany, Austria, and Sweden are working to adjust their approaches to teacher training and placement to better support refugee students in their classrooms, with some Fellows focusing exclusively on helping new arrivals gain language and life skills.

"The most successful of our teachers are putting their students on a path towards opportunities and outcomes in the course of their two years. Our shared goal is to grow our students as leaders who can shape a better future for themselves and all of us. In this pursuit, our teachers are working to improve students’ skills and academic outcomes, developing dispositions that are crucial to success, like the ability to pursue goals, an awareness of the world, and a sense of agency to improve their own lives and our collective welfare."

PISA enables us to analyze what high-performing and rapidly improving countries have in common. We need to ensure those lessons don’t stay on the pages of the report. We need to support a robust global ecosystem to foster learning and collaboration in education, so knowledge can travel quickly to communities around the world that can use it in service of better outcomes for kids.

Teach for All supports educators in more than 40 countries who build “locally-rooted-globally-informed” networks of schools which recruit teachers. After a two-year stint teaching, they often go on to become principals, or education innovators, or local and government leaders in education.
