Vision & Mission

Our Vision

One day, policy makers and education actors will instinctively engage teachers in policy debates and unleash their full potential as leaders because they will recognize teachers as a professional workforce.

Our Mission

The VIVA Project works to dramatically increase classroom teachers’ participation in important policy decisions about public education. We open direct communication between individual teachers and public officials, giving public officials authentic insight into how public classrooms and schools work best so that public policy can have positive impact on student achievement and the teaching profession.
