Straight Talk About Teacher Quality
The Annenberg Foundation has just published a nice report on ideas that work to improve teacher quality. Authored primarily by Marla Ucelli, it draws on some of the best practices across the nation, including Cincinatti, OH, Montgomery County, MD, Hamilton county, TN, and New York City. The six game-changing ideas in the report are: career pathways, measuring performance, supports not rewards, firing not a strategy, school culture and working conditions, teacher collaboration, and partnerships with parents -- no silver bullets, just what we know works. The Schott Foundation, which funded the report, offers this promo, here.
