The NEA Foundation is proud of its long tradition of commissioning reports that focus on teachers and tools for improving teaching and learning.

This publication provides state leaders committed to the important work of  organizational transformation a road map of how to get started—and what to expect as efforts intensify. No two affiliates or the needs of their members are alike, so its focus is deliberately open-ended. It emphasizes a framework through which affiliate leaders can assess and begin efforts  to transform their organizations to better serve  professional advocacy, in whatever form those leaders determine is the best for their members, schools, and students.

This publication covers the last 12 years of our Closing the Achievement Gaps Initiative.
