This vision statement for the future of the teaching profession from the U.S. Department of Education was co-signed by several significant organziations in education.
Transforming the Teaching Profession begins with:
"Improving student learning and educational equity require strong, consistent, and sustained collaboration among parents, teachers, school boards, superintendents and administrators, business leaders, and the community. And such improvements require that we all take responsibility for the academic and social well-being of the students in our charge. It is in this spirit of collaboration that we offer this joint statement on elevating the teaching profession to improve the education of our students."
