AFT Innovation Fund
Teacher-Driven Ideas for School Improvement
The AFT Innovation Fund invests in great ideas for improving schools from those who know them best—educators and their unions.
Members of the AFT have tackled teacher evaluation, Common Core State Standards, expanded learning time, and charter schooling, among other topics. (See a list of our grants at left.)
Over the past five years, the Fund has made 30 investments to support groundbreaking work across the nation. The results are shared throughout the union and beyond. One thread running through nearly all of the grants is collaboration, to make the work sustainable.
