National Commission on Teaching and America's Future
The National Commission on Teaching and America's Future (NCTAF) was founded in 1994 to ensure that every child has access to quality teaching in schools organized for success. In partnership with national, state, and local education agencies, NCTAF develops prototypes for innovative teacher preparation, collaborative teaching teams, and strategies to leverage community engagement, sharing the impact of these programs with those who influence education legislation and policy.
Grounded by 15 years of research about quality teaching and the conditions that facilitate successful learning, NCTAF is helping to transform schools across the country into collaborative, connected environments. Preparing the next generation of learners is a demanding job that no teacher should be expected to tackle alone. In a culture of collaboration and continuous professional development, teachers become more engaged in professionally rewarding careers and are able to more effectively educate our mobile and digitally-connected learners.
