A national nonprofit founded by teachers, TNTP helps school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. The Fund, in partnership with the Joyce Foundation, made a seed investment in TNTP to work with Chicago Public Schools in launching the Chicago Teaching Fellows program.

Impact

  • From 2006-2014, TNTP recruited more than 547 Chicago Teaching Fellows through a highly rigorous selection process.
  • Approximately 80 percent of all Fellows taught in schools with 85 percent or more low-income students. Additionally, more than 80 percent of Fellows taught in high-need subject areas, including math, science, special education and world languages (especially Spanish and Chinese).
  • Chicago Teaching Fellows closed in 2014.
