Educate Texas knows that every child deserves a great teacher. In fact, good teaching is the number-one factor in preparing students for success. Ongoing teacher development programs provide the latest information on how students learn and introduce new technological tools for the classroom. The goal is to ensure that teachers have the right mix of knowledge and skills to educate diverse students across Texas.
By working with the Texas Legislature, school systems, state agencies and teacher preparation programs, Educate Texas helps identify and implement evidence-based policies that support effective teaching. The objective is to design a teacher pipeline for recruitment, development, evaluation, compensation and retention of excellent teachers.


Powered by The Commit Partnership and Communities Foundation of Texas, over 50 partner organizations across Texas are working to ensure all students have access to effective and diverse educators.
The Teaching and Learning Council acts as a resource to Texas legislators, state agencies and other regulatory bodies by sharing its research and evidence-based recommendations related to effective teaching policy.
The Texas Impact Network, a joint venture between Educate Texas and the Commit Partnership, works with state and regional partners to help school districts make the most of Texas House Bill 3’s funding for evidence-backed programs: the Teacher Incentive Allotment; the College, Career, and Military Readiness Outcomes Bonus; and the Additional Days School Year initiative.
