TNTP, 2024
Multilingual learners (MLs) are the country's fastest-growing student population: One in five students speak a language other than English at home, and 10 percent of the student population across the country is identified for language development services in school.

The education students deserve starts with great and diverse teachers. But while many states have made impressive progress on diversifying the teacher workforce, that progress could be at risk. This is because school districts commonly use seniority--"Last In, First Out," or LIFO--to determine which teachers to lay off. But LIFO is not…

In the aftermath of the pandemic, public schools nationwide face profound challenges. Student test scores are down, absenteeism is at an all-time high, and educators are working tirelessly to bridge the learning gap. But research shows families believe that everything is back to normal or will be soon. This report explores this disconnect by…

Schools are working urgently to help students catch back up to grade level in the wake of the pandemic. But that can only happen if students get consistent opportunities to do grade-level work.

TNTP, 2021
With more students returning to in-person instruction, school systems can begin to shift their focus from surviving the crisis to helping students recover. Above all else, that means accelerating students back to grade level--not by rushing through the curriculum, but by using proven strategies that help students engage with the most critical work…

Research suggests more students have experienced more unfinished learning over the last year than ever before. With the COVID-19 pandemic waning, school systems are facing a critical choice about how to respond.

Unfortunately, Arkansas has faced a massive shortage of certified teachers for decades. Statewide, 4 percent of public school teachers are uncertified, with another 3 percent teaching out of field.

When it comes to ensuring every student gets great teachers, state governments play a crucial and underappreciated role. Without access to the right data, school systems will struggle to match the supply and demand for new teachers. Without certification policies that prioritize student impact over paper credentials, too many talented people will…

Closing the teacher diversity gap is one of the most important steps we can take to make public education more equitable.

We have been telling students that doing well in school creates opportunities--that showing up, doing the work, and meeting teachers' expectations will prepare them for their futures. Unfortunately, that is a myth. Far too many students graduate from high school still unprepared for the lives they want to lead. They enroll in college and land in…

How can so many students be graduating from high school unprepared to meet their goals for college and careers? Three years ago, TNTP set out to answer that question.
