EmpowerEd has become a leading voice in DC education- empowering diverse teacher leaders to speak out on behalf of the schools and the students they serve. We are a grassroots group and depend on the support of advocates like you to sustain our work. Together, we can shift the education conversation in DC and put teacher voices front and center.
"We will celebrate our work so far and envision our path forward with your support."
For too long, education discussions have been driven by test scores and "teacher accountability." Rather than listen to teachers as partners on the path to educational equity, teachers voices were sidelined. In the last two years EmpowerEd has driven an education conversation that puts teacher voice front and center, organizing teachers to testify, research and propose and promote new policy.
