The National Partnership for Teaching in At-Risk Schools was announced in February 2005 and represents a national effort to address and resolve the problems that the nation's poorest, lowest performing schools face in recruiting and retaining well-prepared teachers. Partners include Learning Point Associates, the Education Commission of the States (ECS), and ETS.

The National Commission on Teaching and America's Future (NCTAF) challenges the nation to provide every child in America with competent, caring, qualified teachers in schools organized for success.
To achieve this goal, we recommend three strategies: (1) create strong learning communities in schools; (2) assure quality teacher preparation; and (3) support professionally rewarding teaching careers.
