Check It Out: The Chalkboard Project

The Chalkboard Project aims to make Oregon schools the best they can be. This organization aims to achieve this by supporting pilot projects and programs, sponsoring research and focus groups, engaging with experts and advocates and advocating for legislation.

Oftentimes, it seems like helping teachers to do their jobs is something that is wrapped in with other agenda items like better funding or more activities for students or different curriculum but students are usually the primary focus. To me, this organization is interesting because their focus is on helping teachers to be effective in the classrooms and it seems to be their top priority.
