What States Can Do to Improve Teacher Effectiveness. K-12 Policy
Jupp, Brad
Education Trust
Today, the national conversation about educational equity and reform offers an extraordinary opportunity to transform the teaching career. Educators and policymakers understand that solutions lie not in tinkering around the edges but in a concerted effort to create systemic change. To succeed, states must make rapid progress in four areas: (1) Define teacher effectiveness; (2) Build better systems to measure teacher effectiveness; (3) Base milestones in the teaching career on measured effectiveness; and (4) Establish and enforce a policy of equitable access to effective teachers and align other reforms to support this effort.
