They will continue to work with the 15 schools in their Teaching Matters Network which had piloted the program last year, while also targeting 20 additional schools City-wide that have identified math or ELA achievement as being areas of needed improvement. Their aim is to significantly improve instruction in these 35 schools, with a long-term goal of reducing or eliminating student achievement gaps. Teaching Matters is an educational nonprofit dedicated to measurably increasing teacher effectiveness by partnering with those schools in which there exists both the greatest need and the greatest potential to make a positive difference.
