REAP Teach Train Sub
Teacher Training Programs
Seeking an answer:
Teachers undergo training in a staggered fashion, so we were able to evaluate the NTTP by comparing teachers that received training to those who hadn't yet. Our primary outcome? To determine whether students of trained teachers do better in school.
Room for improvement:
Across multiple metrics of student achievement and teacher performance, we found the NTTP to have no impact at all. Zero. Given the enormous costs this is a disappointment to all—especially students that are supposed to benefit.
