Giving students access to highly effective teachers is a major key to improving their achievement, and finding ways to extend the reach of the nation’s best educators could be among the remedies to lagging student learning. Through innovative strategies using technology, staff restructuring, and a rethinking of how funds are allocated, the federal government could help link the most effective teachers with many more students.
Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion about the federal government’s role in getting more students consistent access to highly effective teachers with the release of “Giving Every Student Access to Excellent Teachers: A Vision for Focusing Federal Investments in Education.” This report highlights principal levers that the federal government can use to help deploy the nation’s most effective teachers.
