Founded and led by educators, E4E is a national teacher-led movement that seeks to elevate the quality and prestige of the teaching profession to improve outcomes for students.  Research shows that teachers are the most influential school-based factor determining student achievement, which is why teachers must be informed and empowered as leaders to help shape and lead major educational changes in policy and practice.  E4E provides opportunities for teachers to learn about education issues, network with peers and education leaders, and train to be leaders on behalf of their students and profession.  A two-year W. M. Keck Foundation grant in support of the Los Angeles Chapter of E4E will expand membership from 3,700 to 6,000 members; provide leadership development training to 160 teachers who can serve as peer influencers and leaders on their school campuses; and focus programming on 21st century leadership skills needed to help LAUSD schools transition to the new Common Core State Standards and comply with LAUSD's School Climate Bill of Rights.
