Title:What states can do to improve teacher effectiveness
Organization:The Education Trust
Short Description:Educators and policymakers understand that improving teacher quality lie not in tinkering around the edges but in a concerted effort to create systemic change. To succeed, states must make rapid progress in four areas.
Annotation:Educators and policymakers understand that improving teacher quality lie not in tinkering around the edges but in a concerted effort to create systemic change. To succeed, states must make rapid progress in four areas: (1) defining teacher effectiveness, (2) building better systems to measure teacher effectiveness, (3) basing milestones in the teaching career on measured effectiveness, and (4) establishing and enforcing a policy of equitable access to effective teachers and align other reforms to support this effort.
