Can Schools Grow Their Own? Assessing New Approaches to Developing Local Pipelines of Effective Teachers

Grant Year: 2022

Matthew Kraft and Danielle Edwards will examine the extent to which schools can improve their performance by identifying and training prospective teachers rather than relying on pools of traditionally trained teachers. They will explore the landscape of what have come to be known as Grow-Your-Own programs and examine the effectiveness of a Texas program that provides districts facing staffing challenges with resources to implement such programs. The project’s findings will appear in two research papers and a policy brief.
