Teacher Effectiveness and Equitable Distribution
Comprehensive Planning and Improvement to Equitably Distribute Teachers
Creating equitable distribution of highly qualified teachers and improving teacher effectiveness requires systematic thinking. Professional development must link to teacher evaluations so support can be targeted where it is needed most. Teacher preparation programs need feedback from evaluations on consistently weak areas so the curriculum can be redesigned to strengthen students’ skills.
These strategies are best developed as part of a larger improvement effort focused on enhancing the overall effectiveness of all teachers.
The National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality and Learning Point Associates stand ready to assist regional comprehensive centers and states as they work toward securing funding and creating quality systems for the ongoing support and development of an effective teaching force.
We assist districts in aligning their efforts to state expectations and articulating a comprehensive plan for improvement built on a solid analysis of the factors influencing student achievement.
