An Overview of Legal Issues in Teacher Quality. ECS Working Papers, Law.
Citron, Christiane H.
As popular support grows for improving education, the states are considering many different ways to attract better teachers into teaching and keep good teachers in the schools. Proposed reforms are being widely discussed, in national reports, state legislatures, and many other forums across the nation. Less widely discussed but also important are the legal context for reform and the legal implications for particular types of reform. This paper identifies central legal principles that should shape state action in three areas: the entry of new teachers into the profession, the performance of teachers, and the dismissal of teachers.
