Thinking Systemically: Steps for States to Improve Equity in the Distribution of Teachers-- An Action-Planning Workbook to Help Guide Regional Comprehensive Center and State Education Agency Conversation to Address the Inequitable Distribution of Teachers
National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality
The National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality (TQ Center) is a resource to which the regional comprehensive centers, states, and other education stakeholders turn for strengthening the quality of teaching--especially in high-poverty, low-performing, and hard-to-staff schools--and for finding guidance in addressing specific needs, thereby ensuring that highly qualified teachers are serving students with special needs. The TQ Center designed this equitable distribution workbook to facilitate discussion between the state education agency (SEA) and regional comprehensive center (RCC) staff. The workbook provides a process to take states and their RCC support staff through a series of steps that the TQ Center sees as vital to promoting equitable distribution. Through this workbook, users have an opportunity to develop plans to identify challenges to the equitable distribution of teachers in their states and brainstorm strategies and solutions to ensure the equitable distribution of teachers across and within districts and schools.
