Meyers, Coby V.; VanGronigen, Bryan A. – American Journal of Education, 2018
More than 15 years after the passage of No Child Left Behind, billions of dollars have been spent on school-turnaround policies and initiatives.

Di Carlo, Matthew; Cervantes, Klarissa – Albert Shanker Institute, 2018
Despite increasing attention being focused on the importance of teacher diversity in recent years, the federal government does not centrally collect district- or school-level data on teacher race and ethnicity. This means that responsibility for the collection and promulgation of teacher diversity data falls to individual states and/or districts.…

Hébert, Cristyne – Educational Forum, 2017
This article calls attention to the overreliance on research about the Performance Assessment for California Teachers (PACT)--often labeled edTPA's predecessor--as justification for the edTPA.
