Unfortunately, Arkansas has faced a massive shortage of certified teachers for decades. Statewide, 4 percent of public school teachers are uncertified, with another 3 percent teaching out of field.

With more students returning to in-person instruction, school systems can begin to shift their focus from surviving the crisis to helping students recover.

Research suggests more students have experienced more unfinished learning over the last year than ever before.

When it comes to ensuring every student gets great teachers, state governments play a crucial and underappreciated role.

Without certification policies that prioritize student impact over paper credentials, too many talented people will…

Closing the teacher diversity gap is one of the most important steps we can take to make public education more equitable. But as many school systems across the country have prioritized the issue, one institution has largely escaped scrutiny: teacher preparation programs.

We have been telling students that doing well in school creates opportunities--that showing up, doing the work, and meeting teachers' expectations will prepare them for their futures. Unfortunately, that is a myth. Far too many students graduate from high school still unprepared for the lives they want to lead. They enroll in college and land in…

How can so many students be graduating from high school unprepared to meet their goals for college and careers? Three years ago, TNTP set out to answer that question.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gives states new flexibility to deliver on the promise of public education in the way that works best for the communities they serve--especially when it comes to building school accountability systems.

Jacob, Andy; McGovern, Kate – TNTP, 2015
"The Mirage" describes the widely held perception among education leaders that they already know how to help teachers improve, and that they could achieve their goal of great teaching in far more classrooms if they just applied what they knew more widely. However, research suggests that despite enormous and admirable investments of time…

Nobody goes into teaching to get rich, but that's no excuse not to pay teachers as professionals. Compensation is one of the most important factors in determining who enters the teaching profession and how long they stay--yet 90 percent of all U.S. school districts pay teachers without any regard for their actual performance with students,…
