Teaching in America is undergoing a revolution. Together, historic changes — a potent blend of more challenging standards, increasing accountability, and shifting demographics in the teaching profession — intersect powerfully with the growing movement to redesign schools with expanded time across America. Expanded-time schools add hundreds of hours per year, providing essential additional time within the school day and year for teachers to learn new content, plan for and reflect on lessons, and hone instructional practices.

Please join the National Center on Time & Learning and Teach Plus for a discussion of the exemplary practices being implemented in a diverse group of schools across the U.S. to provide teachers the time and support they need to succeed. The report release event, Time for Teachers:  Leveraging Expanded Time to Strengthen Instruction & Empower Teachers, will feature Roberto Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President and a panel of teachers and leaders, including Paul Toner, President of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, who will help us launch this important policy discussion. 

NCTL’s new report, Time for Teachers, was made possible through the leadership support of The Joyce Foundation. NCTL also gratefully acknowledges Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for supporting NCTL’s knowledge management work.
