How Can We Ensure That All Children Have Excellent Teachers?

Public Agenda released a report outlining three broad strategies for ensuring that all children have access to excellent teaching, along with plenty of specifics to reflect on. The U.S. Department of Education has renewed its focus on ensuring that all students—especially those in under-resourced communities—have access to excellent educators. By June of 2015, all states must engage education stakeholders on locally developed solutions to ensure every student has effective educators.

This discussion guide is designed to help educators, administrators, and other school and district employees work through how their school, community, district, and state can best tackle equal access to excellent educators. This guide can be used in dialogue and focus groups, and insights from these discussions can be used to inform state and federal policy.
