NIET 20th Anniversary Special Edition Magazine2020
Two decades of research and experience have proven the impact of great teaching. NIET's journey began as a bold idea by Lowell Milken to transform American education by elevating and prioritizing teacher excellence. Over the past 20 years, NIET's initiatives – rooted in the TAP System's principles of teacher leadership, professional learning, observation and feedback, and strategic compensation – have impacted more than 275,000 educators and 2.75 million students. NIET has also worked with over 75 colleges and universities to integrate those practices into educator preparation programs.
This special edition magazine tells our story using four pillars that have characterized our commitment to improving education: excellence, evidence, partners, and innovation. We encourage you to read these stories of NIET's partners, how this work has impacted K-12 education reform, and where we are headed next.
