America’s Challenge: Effective Teachers for At-Risk Schools and Students
In the two short years since the launch of the
Center for Teacher Quality (NCCTQ), a tremendous amount of information has been compiled about the availability, recruitment, and retention of teachers for at-risk schools and students.
NCCTQ has compiled much of this learning in its inaugural biennial report, America’s Challenge: Effective Teachers for At-Risk Schools and Students. On October 11, NCCTQ will introduce the biennial report, summarize some of its most important findings, and tell some stories from the field—with a focus on teachers of students with special needs. Also included will be some never-before-released polling data on teachers in their first year of teaching, collected by the research firm Public Agenda.
