NIET Overview: Who We Are

Knowing that teacher quality is the single biggest in-school factor for student success, the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) builds educator excellence to give all students the opportunity for success. Our vision is that every student in America is taught by an excellent teacher and supported by effective leaders every year — and that has been the foundation of our work for the past two decades. We believe that intentional, sustained, and high-quality investments in educators directly result in success for all students and are essential to eliminating equity gaps. As a result, NIET is committed to raising achievement levels for all students by focusing on the most powerful lever for change: teachers and the leadership that supports them.
