HQT Countdown: Just Two Days Left

States have just two more days to turn in their revised teacher quality plans to the USDE showing how their HQT defs meet the law's requirements (many early versions didn't) and how they're going to meet the equity provision of the law as well.

The NYT editorial page addresses the issue and its importance here: "To improve student performance, the states need to play a much stronger role in teacher training and certification — and in making sure that qualified teachers are evenly spread across their school districts," according to this editorial (Teachers Matter). "Breaking with the bad old status quo won't be easy. But it's the only way for the country to improve the educational picture for the poor and minority students who will make up such a large part of the work force of the future."
