The Case for Collaboration
The National Labor-Management Partnership
The National Labor-Management Partnership includes several national organizations representing a diverse contingent of education stakeholders including teachers, principals, superintendents, and many more.
We all have a stake in our education system, and together we can raise the bar on student outcomes all while creating a better environment for everyone from educators to administrators. To that end, the National Labor Management Partnership issued a call to action to the education community to foster a culture of learning and joint problem solving in our schools and districts.
Together, as those closest to the students and families, empowered education stakeholders will transform our nation’s public schools. Learn more and read the Call to Action
The National Labor Management Partnership is proud to announce the release of the newest edition of "Collaborating for Student Success: A Comprehensive Guide for Increasing Shared Decision-Making Through Lasting Partnerships."
Research shows that everyone is stronger through authentic collaboration: student outcomes improve, teacher retention increases, and shared decision-making leads to increased job satisfaction and improved working environments for everyone involved.
The NLMP, and each of its stakeholder groups is committed to fostering those outcomes nationwide, and this guidebook is a resource to that end. It offers information and practical tools for educators to get started building successful, collaborative, sustainable partnerships today, wherever they are, no matter their current environment.
You can download the guidebook here.
