AFT Innovation Fund
Teachers Leading on Standards Grant Program
This is an opportunity for teachers to become more involved in standards. The AFT seeks to draw on teachers' wisdom and experience and provide members with financial resources to do work that they believe will be meaningful and contribute to the educational environment around standards.
Do you want to critique standards and the research behind them? How about offering feedback on the implementation of standards in your state or community? Or do you want to write new standards in a particular grade or subject?
Register here to view the application and supporting documents, and apply for a grant. Applications are due on Sept. 30, 2014.
