NCTQ Looks (Again) at Educator Equity
November 14, 2017
The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has released its analyses of educator equity in 34 recently submitted state plans under ESSA, completing the organization’s analysis of all state ESSA plans. These new analyses highlight strengths and opportunities, demonstrating how most are not doing enough to ensure that low-income students and students of color are not disproportionately taught by ineffective, out-of-field, or inexperienced teachers. NCTQ designed these analyses, along with an ESSA Educator Equity Best Practices Guide, to support state efforts to provide all students with strong teachers.
