New guide aims to positively impact teaching quality through targeted efforts
A new policy guide from seven educational groups aims to help state leaders improve teaching quality with examples of models that, through research and actual implementation, have proven successful in states across the country.
“Excellent Teachers for Each and Every Child,” is broken into six major sections: Recruitment, Preparation, Professional Learning and Development, Evaluation Systems, Equitable Teaching and Learning Conditions, and Funding. Each part of the guide presents examples, sample legislation, and more.
The blueprint aims to help policymakers implement effective policy changes and improve teaching quality “by pulling from research, state, and global models for ensuring a talented, diverse, and sustainable teaching force that prepares all students for college, career, and life.”
