Draft Retains Quality Rules for Teachers
Hoff, David J.; Keller, Bess
Education Week, v27 n3 p1, 23 Sep 2007
This article reports on the "discussion draft" released on September 6, about a week after a preliminary proposal to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law's core Title I program was unveiled. Under the latest House proposal for reauthorizing the NCLB Act, the federal government would invest billions in improving the nation's teaching corps by offering professional development to teachers, recruiting new ones, and providing incentives to draw good teachers to the schools that need them the most. The draft proposal also would keep intact most of the current NCLB law's reporting requirements on whether teachers are "highly qualified" and add new requirements that states identify the districts and schools most in need of highly qualified teachers.
