What Does the Research Tell Us about Teacher Leadership? Research Brief
Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement
In this age of high accountability, teacher quality is receiving more attention than ever before. Research that investigates ways to increase teacher quality is much needed, making this study a timely addition to the literature. Although increases in student achievement related to teacher quality have yet to be adequately documented, the research is promising. The purpose of the research presented in the study is two-fold: (1) to summarize findings through a comprehensive review of the teacher leadership literature and (2) to develop a conceptual framework based on that summary that can guide both current practice and future inquiry about teacher leadership. A list of suggested readings and related web sites concludes the report. [This report was administered by Learning Point Associates.]
