DTEC-TAG Announces Participating Sites and Partners

The Delta Teacher Efficacy Campaign (DTEC) Teachers Advocating to Lead Great Change (TAG) Program recently announced participant sites and its collaborating partners. TAG participants reside in the following selected states/regions: DC-MD-VA, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas; 35 participants and eight supporters have signed on with the education advocacy initiative. The participants will receive training via webinars and in-person institutes throughout 2018 and will continue through September 2019

The first in-person institute will be held April 6-8, 2018 in Washington, D.C.; participants include educators, administrators, parents, students and other community stakeholders.

Three organizations have signed on as partners with TAG, including the Education Trust, The Leadership Conference, and Black Educators Rock, Inc. Dr. Johni Cruse Craig, DTEC project director, stated: “We are ecstatic to collaborate with these organizations in the coming years as we help shape our education advocacy projects and train participants in their respective districts. The work and dedication of our partners are exactly what the DTEC-TAG Team needs to ensure the effectiveness of our program.” 

TAG builds upon the teacher advocacy component of DTEC, and participants will be coached in the areas of advocacy and the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) as they execute a local TAG advocacy project. Working with Dr. Craig on the DTEC-TAG Program is Program Assistant Taylor Dent, who was the 2017 DREF Stephanie Tubbs Jones intern. The TAG program is made possible by a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
