Expansion News: Michigan and MTC
Michigan Teacher Corps (MTC) is grounded in the belief that the most effective way to make lasting change in high-needs schools is by developing strong academic teams who are committed to their own development and believe all children can learn. Together with the Michigan Department of Education, Leading Educators and TNTP have partnered with Priority Schools with significant pipeline needs to recruit, select, support, and retain highly skilled teams of educators and leaders in Michigan’s lowest-performing schools to dramatically raise student achievement and close the achievement gap.
