NCTAF is now part of Learning Forward!

This new strategic alliance honors the history of NCTAF and supports the implementation of the latest work of the Commission: What Matters Now.

NCTAF and Learning Forward have long had aligned missions and organizational goals, and a history of high quality collaboration in areas like professional learning or teacher leadership.

Learning Forward (and the former NCTAF team) is eager to work with states to implement select What Matters Now recommendations, particularly those that apply to building the teaching practice and examining and establishing conditions that lead to effective professional learning.
