About PDK International and Educators Rising
Established in 1906, PDK International supports P-20 educators, researchers, and policy makers by strengthening their commitment to the profession throughout the entire arc of their careers. We are committed to elevating the profession through the intersection of research and practice.
At PDK, we strive to embrace the complexities of public education, be intellectually honest, and ask the right questions. And through our core values of social justice, engagement, excellence and results, we encourage educators and stakeholders to elevate the discourse and change the narrative around teaching & learning to ensure that every student has a high-quality equitable education.
Educators Rising is transforming how America develops aspiring teachers. Starting with high school students, we provide passionate young people with hands-on teaching experience, sustain their interest in the profession, and help them cultivate the skills they need to be successful educators. Every teacher should enter the profession with the necessary skills. Educators Rising is a powerful way to help communities grow the next generation of well-prepared teachers.
