Teacher Quality 2.0: Toward a New Era in Education Reform
Hess, Frederick M., Ed.; McShane, Michael Q., Ed.
Harvard Education Press
In "Teacher Quality 2.0," American Enterprise Institute (AEI) education experts Frederick M. Hess and Michael Q. McShane convene a diverse array of contributors to examine fruitful innovations that promise to improve teacher quality in a more strategic way. Much of the cutting-edge work in teacher quality is happening in nontraditional environments, such as online or hybrid learning or charter schools that are exploring new approaches to staffing. The editors provide examples of schools that are experimenting with new models for recruiting, training, and supporting teachers, and that are using inventive strategies for deploying their talents through differentiated roles and the use of technology. Teacher Quality 2.0 also explores various policy options that could support these new practices.
