Future Is Now works to improve public education by organizing and supporting effective educators to lead reforms in their schools, districts, and unions.
Let’s Break the Stalemate
On one side you have the education “reformers,” who are often armed with bold ideas and some convincing examples, but tend to push their ideas down from the top.
On the other side are those who mistrust the reformers, but in their resistance they end up defending an education system that too often falls short of delivering the outcomes that kids need.
We say it’s time to break the stalemate.
The Teacher Action Network
Future Is Now believes that teachers are the answer, so we created the Teacher Action Network. The Network empowers effective educators to lead reform from the ground up, in their schools, districts, and unions.
The Teacher Action Network:
- Identifies and organizes effective teachers
- Supports teacher-led actions
- Promotes teachers’ accomplishments
Teachers are the key to great public schools. But too often, they’re the last ones consulted on how to make things better. We are tapping into teachers’ great ideas and helping to bring them to life. And through grassroots organizing in the Teacher Action Network, we are building each teacher’s action into something bigger — a movement.
While others fight about the future of public education, we’re helping teachers make it.
