Description

Teaching for Change is a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. that promotes social change through public education. Our mission is to provide teachers and parents with the tools to create schools where students learn to read, write, and change the world. We accomplish our mission using a three-pronged approach that includes:

  • Professional Development, where we: (1) present and facilitate workshops and courses on Teaching for Change publications which includes a focused effort in Mississippi using Putting the Movement Back Into Civil Rights Teaching and (2) collaborate with Rethinking Schools to bring Howard Zinn's A People's History to the classroom through the Zinn Education Project.
  • Parent Power, which uses a unique approach to building grassroots multiracial parent power in schools through training and professional development, and parent engagement through our Tellin' Stories Project; and
  • Publications, through our own publications as well as our physical bookstore at Busboys and Poets and webstore.
