Clark, Melissa; McConnell, Sheena; Constantine, Jill; Chiang, Hanley – National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance, 2013
Schools serving low-income students struggle to attract effective teachers, particularly in science and math. In response to these staffing difficulties, states have tried to lower the barriers to becoming a teacher by establishing "alternative routes to certification." These routes enable teachers to begin teaching before completing all…
