Reforms in Teaching To Come

  • Expand the pool of qualified teachers in areas where they're needed most. Use supply and demand data to connect colleges with local districts. Identify targets.

  • Expand alternative teacher preparation programs, new pathways to certification to recruit and retain teachers. Create a path for paraprofessionals to become teachers.

  • Evaluate the quality of professional development, ensure current teachers get knowledge, skills on how to teach reading, other key areas.
