Opportunity and Responsibility for National Board Certified Teachers. PPI Policy Report
Rotherham, Andrew J.
Progressive Policy Institute
National Board Certified Teachers cannot, in isolation, be expected to help turn around low-performing schools or solve the teacher quality problem. However, state policymakers can work to ensure that NBCTs are more directly involved in these efforts than they are today. Currently, state policies aiding NBCTs are not aligned with the overarching goal of improving education in underserved communities. If states provide bonuses and salary differentials to NBCTs, they should ensure that these efforts are acting in concert with overall state policy goals and are improving educational equity.
