Classroom Impact

Teaching Is Leading

Network partners begin cultivating leadership by calling on their countries’ diverse  graduates and professionals to commit at least two years to teach in the schools and communities where they’re needed most.

Belief in the Potential of Every Child

Through ongoing training and development, network teachers become strong classroom leaders and determined advocates for their students. They experience first-hand how much they, and their students, are capable of accomplishing. And they gain a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities—and the conviction that overcoming these obstacles is possible.

Student Academic Achievement

TEACH FOR AMERICA

A peer-reviewed meta-analysis of the impacts of alternative teaching pathways finds that students of Teach For America, on average, tend to excel as well, if not stronger, academically compared to students of teachers from traditional training programs. The meta-analysis assessed over 719 studies of alternative teaching pathways from 1989 to 2016 and systematically selected 12 highly rigorous studies, 4 of which evaluated Teach For America.

Student Non-Academic Outcomes

ENSEÑA POR MÉXICO

An impact evaluation of Enseña por México finds participants have a positive impact on the development of students’ socioemotional skills such as self-efficacy, self-management, growth mindset, and social awareness. Furthermore, the study shows that students with greater exposure to participants of Enseña por México are more likely to improve in socioemotional skills.

Teacher Leadership Development

NEWTT

NEWTT is an external and independent collection of two-year evaluations of five Teach For All partner organizations in Europe on teacher leadership development. The report demonstrates that, overall,  the network partners' teachers are as prepared as, if not more prepared than, traditionally trained teachers before entering the classroom, and, over the course of two years, developed as much self-efficacy and pedagogical knowledge as traditionally trained teachers.

 

Independent Research

We're seeing evidence of teachers across the network developing students inside and outside of the classroom.
