Explornet, known as the Centers for Quality Teaching and Learning works with schools to improve overall instruction. QTL specialists work directly in the schools and help teachers to see and understand the best use of research-based instructional strategies with their own students. QTL has worked with schools in improvement that later (sometimes the same year) make AYP and all their goals. QTL is a positive experience for teachers by looking at the things teachers already do well and helping them to do them even better --and results in improving student performance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Overall school improvenment

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase its support from the state so they can help more schools.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

dealing with people who know what they are doing and take responsibility for their work.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, professional and focused

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ways to make it better...

The culture of my school was negative and took some time to win them over.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting schools to pay for services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

THis organization trains all its people well in working with teachers and principals.
