Study shows that mentoring and leadership coaching are helping teachers increase student achievement in some subjects
Giving teachers two years of formal PD and training sessions with a leadership coach could result in higher student achievement in certain curriculum areas, according to a new RAND Corporation study.
The program, which also includes a mentoring component in which teachers receiving the program’s services mentor other teachers, has shown early signs of success.
The fellowship program created by Leading Educators, a national nonprofit based in New Orleans, is showing promising results on student achievement in math and social studies, according to a preliminary evaluation of the effort.
