Knowing how schools, districts, states, professional groups, and institutions enable high-quality teaching and learning is critical to the welfare of the nation's education system and the young people it serves. To this end, the Center for the Study of Teaching and Policy (CTP) studies efforts to improve the quality of teaching and learning as they are enacted in various contexts and at multiple levels of the system. The goal of the Center's research is to identify ways that leaders, policymakers, teacher developers, and the reform community can support teachers' work and careers and, ultimately, the quality of young peoples' learning opportunities in U.S. elementary and secondary schools.
