This chapter discusses the CC9’s efforts in establishing the lead teacher campaign. The campaign sought to install “lead teachers” into CC9 schools. These teachers were seasoned experts that would spend half their time educating the students on their own, while simultaneously contributing the remainder of that time to training the younger and more inexperienced teachers. The purpose of this campaign was to draw these expert instructors into the poorer communities and to provide inexperienced teachers with essential classroom support. The CC9 had recognized that instructor capacity was the most important factor in student achievement, hence the lead teacher program. This campaign demanded that the city create the “lead teacher” job title, as well as invest in the necessary resources required by the program in reaching the CC9 schools.
