Empowering and Enabling Teachers to Improve Equity and Outcomes for All
From 29-31 March 2017, the United Kingdom will be hosting the 7th International Summit on the Teaching Profession (ISTP) in Scotland.  Since its inaugural edition in 2011 in New York City, the ISTP has become an important forum for open and constructive exchange on effective teacher policies and practices. It assembles governments and teacher organisations from a number of high-performing and rapidly improving school systems.
