Smith, Thomas M.; Desimone, Laura M.
Educational Horizons, v81 n3 p119-29 Spr 2003
Schools and Staffing Survey data on public school teachers from 1993-94 and 1999-2000 show that more teachers participate in content-focused professional development, more policy supports provide incentives for participation, and more resources for professional development are allocated to high-poverty schools. The largest increase in sustained professional development is in math. Novice and experienced teachers' participation patterns differ. (Contains 26 endnotes.) (SK)
