20 Sep HOPE STREET GROUP STATE TEACHER FELLOWSHIP EVALUATION: BUILDING SUSTAINABLE IMPACT
Hope Street Group (HSG) launched its first State Teacher Fellows (STF) program in Kentucky in 2013 and since that time has expanded to three additional states, Hawai`i (2014), North Carolina (2015), and Tennessee (2015). With the aim of amplifying teacher voice to inform statewide education policy, the programs have provided training, tools, and resources to a cadre of selected teacher fellows in each state. HSG provided fellows with the training, tools, and resources to transform both state education policy and the teaching profession in their respective states.
This report reviews the data collected during the 2016–17 school year, drawing on data from prior years where prior year data informs the interpretation of this year’s data. The report focuses on three key points in the model: the fellows’ impact on policy and practice, the fellows’ professional growth and development as teacher leaders and policy entrepreneurs, and how each state program has responded to turbulence in the policy system. Implications of the findings yield recommendations for continued improvement in the program nationally and within the states.
