Institute for Innovation

The NEA Foundation Institute for Innovation in Teaching and Learning gave local union and school district leaders the opportunity to work with a coach to improve education. They focused on a single issue that impacted public education in their communities.

Several of these teams developed peer assistance and review (PAR) programs for their districts.
