About PDK International

Established in 1906, PDK International supports teachers and school leaders by strengthening their interest in the profession through the entire arc of their career.

We honor educators as professionals who learn daily from their work and want to share their knowledge with others to transform the lives of their students and their own specialized work.

As a social sector organization, we elevate the discourse around teaching and learning with the goal of transforming the student experience to ensure that every child has access to a high-quality education.
