The mission of the National School Reform Faculty is
to foster educational and social equity by empowering
all people involved with schools to work collaboratively
in reflective democratic communities that create and
support powerful learning experiences for everyone.
National School Reform Faculty (NSRF) is rooted in four beliefs:
- Working together, teachers and administrators can make real and lasting improvements in their own schools.
Teachers and administrators must help each other turn theories
into practice and standards into actual student learning.
The key to these efforts is the development of a "professional learning
community" based on public, collaborative examination of
both adult and student work.
Practitioners need quality time
and sustained support to create this community.
