Martin Institute Mentioned in Article on Good Schools Benefitting Community

The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence was listed as an example of a good school being a beneficial to the local community in a guest article by John Chubb, president of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) in Saturday’s edition of the Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, MS).

Diverse approaches to education help promote innovation, and these innovations can be shared broadly. One example of this is the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence. Housed at an independent private school, the Presbyterian Day School in Memphis, Tennessee, the Martin Institute provides professional development for teachers from public, private, and charter schools. The Institute’s focus is on helping educators bring more critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and brain-based research into the classroom. Not only are these educators improving their own practice; by working together, they share their knowledge and ideas with one another, further helping to improve learning for all children.

Examples like this abound and should be celebrated.
