Building Support for Effective Teaching: The Impact of Public Will
United Way Worldwide has released a new report focused on a crucial question: how can our communities empower those who educate our children? Building Support for Effective Teaching: The Impact of Public Will examines work led by United Way and a number of partners, including America’s Promise, that was designed to cut the number of high-school dropouts and help all students graduate college- and career-ready, United Way chose 14 of its affiliates in Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee to identify strategies to support and enhance effective teaching at every grade level.
The report shares the work of these communities: how they built coalitions of diverse education stakeholders (and why diverse coalitions matter); how they crafted advocacy plans and strategies to take the conversation beyond their local communities; and how they mobilized others to advocate for bold reform. These lessons can be adopted by other communities to help prepare their students for a lifetime of success.
