fulfill the promise of public education by ensuring that all students—

students. TNTP has also released a series of acclaimed studies of the
policies and practices that affect the quality of the nation’s teacher
workforce, most recently including The Widget Effect: Our National
Failure to Acknowledge and Act on Differences in Teacher Effectiveness
(2009). Today TNTP is active in more than 40 cities, including
Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, New Orleans, New York, and Oakland, among
others. For more information, please visit
