TDP engages teachers, parents and community members in Fellowship Projects. Fellows are working on: Restorative Practices and bullying, socially engaged curriculum, and parent power. By proactively connecting teachers, parents and community members we aim to transform school relationships, culture and the way decisions get made.
Our Advocacy Work is a result of what we hear from our fellows as they tackle issues in their schools and in response to larger national and local trends. We couple teacher and parent feedback with other research to help us advocate for better policies and practices. We attend school board meetings and host community forums around how to create more equity and inclusion in school decision making.
