Education Department approves 16 states' plans for teacher equity
from The Washington Post
The Obama administration has approved 16 states' plans to ensure that all students, including those in high-poverty schools, have equitable access to strong teachers, Education Department officials announced Thursday. Some states are offering financial incentives to teachers who agree to work in hard-to-staff schools. Others are focusing on developing stronger principals, since teachers cite administrators as key reasons for their decisions to stay or leave a school.
