Improving outcomes in math and science requires more than just focusing on students. It also requires investing in teachers and getting them more deeply involved in the school’s environment and the broader public discourse around education. Math for America is a nonprofit founded in 2004 that helps build community for teachers so they can make a lasting impact on their schools and their profession. The nonprofit’s leaders talked with us about everything from their service model to the search to replace Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña.
