The Center on Great Teachers and Leaders (GTL Center) is part of the comprehensive center network and is designed  to consult national, regional, and state partners to build carefully designed, intensive state and local projects that can move the needle on improving equitable access to effective educators. Our TA approach is designed to help states and districts identify, tailor, and implement evidence-based strategies to establish an aligned talent management system that attracts, supports, and retains a diverse, effective, and talented workforce of educators for the students who need them the most.

Each project addresses a strategy and describes:

  • The best practices that support the implementation of the strategy
  • The empirical studies and evidence that demonstrate the effects of the strategy on the outcomes of teachers and students

The GTL Center projects include multi-year, multi-state initiatives that include district teams as well as shorter, more targeted work with a single state and districts.
