Professional communities improve many elementary school students’ math scores –¬†American Sociological Association via Science Daily, http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/06/130651302190.htm

Many elementary students’ math performance improves when their teachers collaborate, work in professional learning communities or do both, yet most students don’t spend all of their elementary school years in these settings, a new study by UNC Charlotte researchers shows. Collaboration involves teachers working together to promote student achievement. A professional community exists when teachers feel a sense of belonging to a school, take pride in the school, understand and accept the school’s mission, and are constantly learning strategies to improve student achievement.
