The Teaching Policy Fellowship is a highly selective, rigorous program for teachers who want to deepen their knowledge in education policy and have a voice in the decisions that affect their students and the profession. The program offers excellent teachers the opportunity to expand their influence without leaving the classroom. During the program, the Fellows receive extensive training on topics such as policy, advocacy, and storytelling. The Fellows engage directly with key education stakeholders and policy makers, shaping and advocating for policies that meet the needs of their students.
We offer Fellowships in California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Mexico. In our local-level Fellowships in Chicago, Greater Boston, Indianapolis, and Los Angeles, we work with exceptional teachers to train and empower them to lead on policy and advocacy around key district-level issues. In our state Fellowships in California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, and New Mexico, Fellows focus on state-wide issues such as the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
