National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality
Teacher leadership can improve teacher retention, strengthen the teaching profession, build the capacity of school leaders, and facilitate innovative advances to the structure of school staffing. Therefore, many states are beginning to formalize teacher-leadership options, and this expanded career continuum is expected to facilitate improved teacher recruitment and retention rates (Koppich, 2001). This TQ Center Policy-to-Practice Brief will discuss these innovations and provide action steps and promising strategies for other educational leaders to further promote teacher leadership in schools.
