Every Child Deserves Our Best: Recommendations from North Carolina's National Board Certified Teachers on How to Support and Staff High-Needs Schools
Berry, Barnett; Ferriter, Bill
Center for Teaching Quality
This report contains recommendations from North Carolina's National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) on how to support and staff high-needs schools and solve the state's staffing problems in these schools. Beyond financial incentives, a comprehensive approach is recommended that takes into account the working conditions that North Carolina's NBCTs say are necessary to attract, promote, and sustain quality teaching in a school, including: (1) skillful administrators; (2) sufficient curriculum resources; (3) a high quality, results-driven professional development program; and (4) the time for teachers to reflect collaboratively on student data and their own teaching practice, searching for the most effective strategies to reach every child. (Contains 7 notes.) [This report was written with Carolyn McClennahan Banks and Kathy Drew. It was produced by the Center for Teaching Quality, formerly known as the Southeast Center for Teaching Quality.]
