In Every Core Class, a Qualified Teacher...
Education Week, v26 n1 p42-44 Aug 2006
This article reports the teacher-quality plans of putting a highly qualified teacher in every core class which were due to the Education Department in July 7. In the plans, states are required to describe which groups of teachers are not yet highly qualified according to the federal standard, how they would help--and prod--districts to use only such teachers, and what steps they are taking to ensure an equitable share of such teachers for poor and minority children. U.S. Department of Education officials said all but four states could address shortcomings in their teacher-quality plans with revisions that would be due by the end of September. They singled out nine states for having plans that were complete and specific, and in need of few changes.
