About Us

What is the goal of Teacherpensions.org?

The goal of Teacherpensions.org is to provide high-quality information and analysis to help stakeholders – especially teachers and policymakers – understand the teacher pension issue and the trade-offs among various options for reform. We believe there is a need for additional analysis of and communication about teacher pensions – an issue that has not yet gained sufficient traction nationally, despite its seriousness and immediacy. We aim to make the issues around teacher pensions more accessible and relevant to the general public, more compelling to policymakers, and more understandable for current teachers.

Teacherpensions.org focuses on questions affecting public policy choices; it is not personal or institutional investment advice. You should consult a qualified financial professional before making consequential financial decisions.

Who created Teacherpensions.org?

To do this, we provide a unique combination of exceptional thinking, talent, and hands-on strategic support.
