Practicing educators have unmatched classroom-based expertise about how education policy affects teaching and learning.  Our team ad America Achieves is helping them build a bridge from the classroom to the Capitol.

We provide best-in-class training and nurture a professional learning community for teachers and principals who have made a positive impact for kids and want to scale their impact to their state's education system. 


The Educator Voice Fellowship equips top teachers and principals to tap their classroom and school expertise to have an effective seat at the table and be co-architects of state and local education policy that raises standards for teaching and learning, makes public education more equitable, and elevates the teaching profession.


Our vision is for effective teachers and principals to be a central and non-negotiable part of any education advocacy campaign or policy-making process.


We believe that educators who have helped students from all backgrounds succeed academically have an unmatched expertise about the ways that education policy affects teaching and learning and therefore should play a leading role in these conversations.

Though our national network of statewide fellowship programs, we help educators learn how policy is made in their states, build their advocacy, communication, and leadership skills, and open doors for them to share their expertise to influence policy decisions. Our highly-selective program provides teachers and principals a platform for sharing their perspectives about what’s working and how to make improvements in their schools.
