About Teacher Policy Teams

Through E4E Teacher Policy Teams, teachers have a unique opportunity to write and advocate on an issue affecting the teaching profession and student outcomes in their district.

These teams of 15-20 teachers spend weeks researching, sharing experiences, and writing recommendations that originate from the classroom. Then, team members work with fellow teachers to discuss and advocate for these recommendations.

Since 2011, teachers have tackled issues including both principal and teacher evaluation, pay structures, and layoffs through Teacher Policy Teams.
