The mission of the David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching is to collaborate with teachers, school leaders, districts, and other educators to improve the quality of education for students and to transform the teaching profession to attract, retain, and develop quality educators. We achieve this mission through partnerships with schools, the broader educational community, business and industry, and the community at large.

We Believe That:

  • All children deserve a high-quality public education, regardless of race, gender, geography, or socio-economic status.
  • Stakeholders who possess a wide range of perspectives about education need to engage in courageous conversations with each other in order to improve education.
  • Real change requires collaborative, applied, actionable, and sustained educational innovation and research that targets resolving a problem of practice.
