At DFI, we believe a win-win solution exists that could simultaneously accelerate PK-12 student learning and build a pipeline of well-prepared, diverse educators.
We can mobilize our nation’s 600,000 aspiring teachers as high-impact tutors, especially in our highest-need schools. To explore this solution, we launched the Aspiring Teachers as Tutors Network – a national collaborative of tutoring initiatives that aims to increase the number of aspiring teachers serving as high-impact tutors and to strengthen their instructional skills through practice-based experiences and training.
Mobilizing Aspiring Teachers as Tutors: Policy Solutions to Accelerate Student Learning and Strengthen Teacher Pipelines articulates the role policy leaders must take to create conditions that would mobilize hundreds of thousands more tutors in the coming years. The resource explores three solutions, accompanied by specific policy actions, to solve the field’s most pressing problems preventing the scale and sustainability of successful efforts.
