We believe that Oklahoma’s educational crisis boils down to a single issue: the quality of human capital in our schools.
A statewide teacher shortage: In 2019, the State Board of Education approved nearly 3,000 emergency teaching certificates this year.
Retention: Data shows the majority of teachers in Oklahoma leave the teaching profession between 2-5 years.
The Teaching & Leading Initiative of Oklahoma partners with school districts to improve the quality of human capital through high-quality professional learning, teacher recruitment, teacher development, and school leader development.
The Teaching & Leading Initiative of Oklahoma provides four critical services to Oklahoma schools: research-based professional learning, teacher development, school leader training, and teacher recruitment.
