Teachers Network Leadership Institute
The national Teachers Network Leadership Institute (TNLI) is a diverse group of public school teachers from across the country--representing all grade levels and subject areas. Fellows conduct action research projects, prepare reports documenting their findings, disseminate their work and take action to implement their policy recommendations. They also read and discuss shared journal articles, research educational policy issues and prepare policy papers.
TNLI Action Research--Studies focus on real issues and the impact of policy within teachers' own classrooms and schools. The research addresses the direct link between policymaking and its effects on student learning.
TNLI is a project of the National Teachers Network. It provides teachers nationwide the opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills to influence policy locally, statewide, and nationally.
