Teaching Policy Fellowship: California
Training teachers as policy advocates to ensure that California teachers and students thrive.
Teaching Policy Fellowship California
Since 2011, more than 100 highly effective teachers have taken part in the California Teaching Policy Fellowship. In California, we offer a statewide teaching policy fellowship to outstanding teachers in the state looking to deepen their knowledge of education policy and gain a voice in decisions that directly affect students and the teaching profession
What is the Teach Plus California Teaching Policy Fellowship?
The Fellowship offers teachers the opportunity to expand their influence without leaving the classroom. Fellows meet in monthly sessions–either in person or virtually–to train in:
- Education policy as a lever for student success
- Advocacy, including op-ed writing, testifying, and speaking with elected officials and members of the media
- Current and relevant issues in education policy
- Teachers as political leaders
Fellows receive a $1,500 stipend for their commitment.
Written applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until 11:59pm on July 21, 2019.
