The TLF, serving schools and teachers in all 50 U.S. states and 87 countries, is an impact committed, mission driven non-profit that serves the educational community by addressing the unequal distribution of highly-qualified and highly-effective teachers.
The Foundation is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of all subjects, core and elective, at all K12 grade levels. The most common sense path to this goal is to better prepare teachers for new assignments which, in turn, leads to improved student achievement.
Phi Delta Kappa, the Education Association, recognizes the Expert Systems for Teachers ®, sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Foundation, as an innovative Professional Education program.
The following universities host over 100 subject-specific courses for the benefit of teachers with new assignments. Through these higher-ed partnerships, the Expert System for Teachers® program addresses not only 1) the need for individual teacher assistance but also 2) school and district teacher recruitment, development and retention issues.
