NCTR disrupts historical educational inequities
by advancing the teacher residency movement to prepare effective, diverse, and culturally responsive educators.
Students of color
and low-income students
have equitable access to effective, diverse, and culturally responsive educators.
Why NCTR’s Model is Better
Since 2007, NCTR has helped launch more than 70 teacher residency programs that are preparing diverse, talented, and effective educators.
NCTR’s model has been documented to have a unique impact on the instructional effectiveness of mentors. In a study conducted by Glass Frog Solutions, “hosting a resident in NCTR residency programs has shown to improve teacher effectiveness throughout the residency year” (NCTR Annual Report 2019-2020).
NCTR in Action
Teacher residency programs impact student achievement and teacher retention, improving outcomes for children in hard-to-staff and high-need schools.
