A New Approach to Improving Teacher Quality

The New Teacher Project was formed in 1997 to address the growing issues of teacher shortages and teacher quality throughout the country. In its first year, TNTP embarked on three projects to create and implement high-quality alternative route to certification programs to bring new streams of accomplished individuals into hard-to-staff urban schools. Since then, TNTP has worked with more than 200 school districts and become a nationally-recognized authority on new teacher recruitment and hiring.

Today, The New Teacher Project is working to advance a new human capital model for urban school systems. TNTP intends to realize a fundamental shift in the way quality teachers are generated, matched to schools, and trained. Leading this effort is TNTP's CEO Ariela Rozman, who assumed this position in 2007 after TNTP founder and longtime CEO, Michelle Rhee, was appointed Chancellor of the Washington, DC public schools. Timothy Daly, who ran TNTP's highly successful New York City Teaching Fellows Program and spearheaded the organization's policy work, was named President.

Looking ahead, we continue to believe that change can happen in even the most challenged of our nation's schools. We know this is possible because we have developed a keen understanding of the problems that prevent schools from securing quality teachers; because we have created solutions to these problems and worked hand-in-hand with school districts to implement them; and because we have succeeded in finding tens of thousands of accomplished citizens willing to take a stake in the future of public education by becoming teachers. For these reasons, we remain committed to our vision of a nation whose public schools are thriving organizations that offer all children an excellent education.
