A Fledgling Teacher-Led School Trend

Palmer Park Preparatory Academy

My husband found an interesting blog post on the idea of the teacher-led school model.  The idea of a greater presence in the classroom for decision-makers is one which piques my interest.  I am fortunate to work in an educational community where everybody’s involved in student life.  It’s a bit like living in a small town.  Mrs. Crabtree tells your Sunday School teacher what she saw and the milkman noticed something too and we’re all talking to your mom.  But I digress… Enjoy the post:

  1. I work with Education|Evolving on our schools with teacher autonomy research. You might be interested in online National Inventory of Schools with Teacher Autonomy: http://www.educationevolving.org/teacherpartnerships/inventory

    There has been a lot of press on “teacher-run schools” and teacher autonomy in the last year. As you can see from our inventory, some of these schools have been working with this structure for years, a couple since the 1970s. There is also a lot of variety among the schools themselves (charter, district, pilot…) and the types of schools teachers create when they are given the autonomy and authority to build schools themselves.
