Therefore, some educators perceive students as being culturally
deprived when they do not come from middle income homes, with two parents who
are college educated and use standard English. Consequently, according to the

related educator supports–such as peer-to-peer coaching and job-embedded
professional development–the TIF program aims to improve student outcomes by
increasing educators’ effectiveness. reward excellent teachers as they advance

instructional leadership roles within their schools; incentives that attract,
support, reward, and retain the most effective teachers and administrators at
high-need schools; (U.S. Department of Education)
