Redesigning education for learners and educators
To deliver meaningful and equitable learning outcomes, we need to redesign the profession, the workplace and how we prepare people for both.
Why build the Next Education Workforce™?
Nationally, teacher preparation programs have long seen declining enrollment. Teachers switch careers or retire early. They receive less pay and enjoy less social status than many other professionals. We ask teachers to be all things to all people at all times. The job is hard in specific ways that inhibit success. As a result, our education system does not reliably deliver quality learning outcomes and experiences for nearly enough people and communities.
Meeting the challenge
To build the Next Education Workforce, Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College works with schools and other partners to 1) provide all students with deeper and personalized learning by building teams of educators with distributed expertise and 2) empower educators by developing better ways to enter the profession, specialize and advance.
