In an essay published on the Atlantic website on April 17, 2012, Jeffrey Mirel and Simona Goldin write about the benefits of K-12 teacher collaboration and the changes needed in U.S. schools to support teachers in working with one another. They cite the widespread adoption of the Common Core curricular standards as a step in the right direction. They caution, however, that some teacher assessment processes could create a competitive environment detrimental to collaboration.

Jeffrey Mirel is the David L. Angus Collegiate Chair, School of Education; and professor, Department of History, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.

Simona Goldin is a research specialist in the School of Education.
