We're partnering with Camden City School District to develop local educators into strong instructional leaders. CamdenPLUS Residents will participate in a rigorous, hands-on training program, with a focus on supporting teachers and helping all students learn.

California’s Students Get Their Day in Court

Decades-old policies that shield ineffective teachers from dismissal are under fire in a California courtroom, thanks to a class-action suit led by nine students asserting their right to an equal education. We have all lost when low-income students must sue the adults in charge.
