The Education Trust recently published a report titled “Building and Sustaining Talent: Creating Conditions in High-Poverty Schools That Support Effective Teaching and Learning.” Not unlike The New Teacher Project’s Greenhouse Schools report, the Education Trust argues that schools’ teaching and learning environments, their “cultures”, play a huge role in attracting and retaining high-quality and highly-effective teachers. School leadership and staff cohesion, for example, matter a great deal to teachers in high-poverty schools. The report highlights promising practices in three school districts, as well as two other up-and-coming practices. Education Week‘s Teaching Now blog covers the report here.
