55,000 Reasons to Believe: The Impact of National Board Certification on Teacher Quality in America
National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
Since its inception in 1987, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards[R] (NBPTS) has met its goals of creating standards for what teachers should know and be able to do and established a national voluntary certification system for accomplished teachers. To help commemorate its 20th anniversary, the NBPTS has published this report to take stock of its accomplishments and lay out its vision for moving forward. Spotlighting the current number of National Board Certified Teachers, this report describes the growing impact they are having in classrooms in every state and the powerful role NBPTS Standards and certification have in education reform efforts. [This publication was prepared by CommunicationWorks, L.L.C. for submission under a contract with NBPTS.]
