Title:Qualified teachers for at-risk schools: A national imperative
Source:http://www.ecs.org/clearinghouse/57/96/5796.pdf
Date:2005
Organization:National Partnership for At-Risk Schools
Short Description:The goal of this report is discuss what we know and don’t know about the challenge of staffing at-risk schools, and to identify some of the strategies that policymakers and other key stakeholders can consider in their efforts to ensure that students in all schools have the high-quality teachers they need and deserve.
Annotation:Many people assume that achievement gaps are the inevitable result of poverty and social problmes, however research indicates that a succession of motivated, well-prepared, and experienced teachers, can narrow, if not completely close the gaps in achievement between poor children and their more affluent peers. The goal of this report is discuss what we know and don’t know about the challenge of staffing at-risk schools, and to identify some of the strategies that policymakers and other key stakeholders can consider in their efforts to ensure that students in all schools have the high-quality teachers they need and deserve.
