What We Believe
Center for Urban Teaching (CfUT) leadership, staff, board and supporters believe there is nothing more important for the future of our city, state, and nation than our children’s educational success.
We believe the commitment of individual teachers and leaders will transform our schools, our cities, our state, and our country. Teacher quality is the number one determining factor in student achievement. Exceptional school leaders set a vision that empowers and retains top teaching talent. The teachers, leaders, and schools that have the greatest impact are those founded on respect, high expectations, and unconditional love.
We believe every single teacher and every single school leader holds our children’s future in their hands.
We help shape that future.
Our vision is to be the foremost producer and provider of high-performing urban teachers and leaders, thereby leading the way in creating success in urban classrooms throughout our city and beyond. Currently CfUT is on target to expand its pipeline of teachers and leaders so that by 2020 there are 500 alumni actively serving in the field.
