Teacher teams who have formal, collective autonomy to make decisions in their schools. The phrase can (but does not always) refer to teachers who operate their school through a formally organized legal entity such as a partnership or a cooperative. Practically speaking, teacher-powered schools are akin to “professional partnerships” we see in other fields, such as law firms, physician practices, and architectural groups. Note: this phase is synonymous with teacher professional partnerships.
