An Effective Teacher in Every Classroom
Summer 2010| Education Next

The Department of Education has released a new plan to ensure that poor and minority students have equal access to effective teachers. The plan builds on a requirement  in NCLB that has so far not been enforced. All states are required to develop plans to boost teacher equity and submit those plans to the U.S. Department of Education.

Kati Haycock and Eric Hanushek debate the best way to ensure equitable access to effective teachers in an Ed Next forum: “An Effective Teacher in Every Classroom: A lofty goal, but how to do it?” They discuss how readily we can identify effective teachers and what are the most promising strategies for seeking to increase the number of effective teachers in high-poverty schools and communities.
