Many education agencies feel an enormous strain to meet the federal mandate that all teachers be highly qualified. State and local policies must be established that address effective ways to hire, train, support, and retain teachers who meet the standards specified in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation. To help policymakers with the difficult decisions they face when evaluating existing policies, establishing new policies, and seeking necessary resources related to improving teacher resources, Jennifer King Rice, Ph.D. from the University of Maryland developed a "best-fit" decision making approach. Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) invited Jennifer King Rice, Ph.D. to share her best-fit decision making approach to improving teacher resources. This issue describes her model and provides guidance on its use. (Contains 3 tables.)
