How a professional development model of teachers teaching teachers has taken root in Yuba City, CA.
The California Teachers Association (CTA), the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE), and the National Board Resource Center at Stanford University (NBRC) collaborate to support educator-driven professional development that benefits all California schools and students. Together, these organizations created the Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC) to build a network of accomplished classroom teachers, site leaders, administrators, and higher education professionals. We have expanded the program into rural or underserved areas. All teams are creating and sustaining professional learning where Educators Educate Educators.
Since Fall 2014, the ILC has served over 126,000 educators representing thousands of California public schools in at least 530 school districts.
