Learning Point Associates introduces the Quick Key Action Guides, designed to help educators successfully implement the various components of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The new series builds on the quality and success of the first seven Quick Keys, which focused on understanding the NCLB Act.
This publication discusses the NCLB requirements for teacher quality and the relationship of teacher quality to student achievement. It suggests actions that states and districts can take to close achievement gaps by focusing on teacher-quality issues. It also provides funding suggestions and practical resources for implementing teaching-quality reform measures.
