We’re developing the next generation of systems change leaders
Teach For America (TFA) works toward the day when every child will have access to an excellent education, identifying and nurturing leaders committed to expanding opportunities for low-income students and spearheading transformational systems change in the communities we serve.

for Strategic Clarity
The 6 Questions is an inquiry-based leadership development framework that equips education leaders with the strategic clarity needed to drive transformational systems change. Representing the distillation of more than 30 years of systems-change thinking at TFA, the 6 Questions guides leaders through a community-grounded, asset-minded, and reflective process of understanding their community’s education system, naming the change that is needed, and building a strategy to get there.
