NCTQ Blueprint for Change

This is an interim year for NCTQ’s State Teacher Policy Yearbook, but since there have been so many significant policy changes in the last year (as a result of the Race to the Top competition), the organization has released state-by-state Blueprint for Change reports with 2010 updates.

The Blueprint for Change reports update changes in state laws, rules and regulations governing the teaching profession that have occurred in the last year, including key policy areas such as teacher preparation, evaluation, tenure, dismissal and alternative certification.  They provide state-specific, customized roadmaps for each state, identifying policies most in need of policymakers’ attention.
