New Report Lays Out Vision for Elevating and Modernizing the Teaching Profession

Carmel Martin, Lisette Partelow, and Catherine Brown of the Center for American Progress have authored a report and offered proposals with the goal of elevating and modernizing the teaching perfection.
Unfortunately, the ways in which schools and school days are organized—and the ways in which school systems have been designed to train, support, and develop teachers—have not kept pace with the tectonic shifts in teachers’ daily realities, making it difficult for teachers to succeed in their profession. The public’s perception of teaching is equally out of date, preventing the full realization of Lanier’s vision to elevate the profession’s standing in American culture.
