We work at every level of the public school system to help our partners achieve their goals for students.
We focus on three areas to ensure teachers succeed and students thrive.
Are students studying challenging, engaging and relevant content?
Are educators in the right roles with the right skills to help students thrive?
Are policies, systems and communities supporting great schools for all?
How We Work
TNTP offers a range of support to partners, from strategic advice to multi-year execution.
TNTP counsels education leaders on how to approach questions of educational quality, from navigating negotiations to engaging community members to communicating a superintendent’s vision.
Understanding the problem is half the battle. Our experts collect key information—from observing 1,000 classrooms to surveying 10,000 teachers—to pinpoint root causes and map a way forward.
Clients face many challenges without ready answers. We design new ways of working, whether we're training educators, investing in rigorous academic content, or evolving teacher pay and evaluations.
We supply both vision and manpower. We work with district staff to faithfully implement good ideas, whether we're training 10,000 school leaders in a summer or recruiting 19,000 teachers over a decade.
