October Issue Brief: Access to Effective Teachers

In Case You Missed It!The U.S. Education Department has recently rolled out another phase in its quest to ensure that lower income students have similarly excellent teachers as their higher income peers. What is the research behind the push for equitable distribution of teacher effectiveness? What are the issues and complexities of this work?

In this month’s issue brief, we explore research, resources, and ideas related to shifts in policy and practice; incentives for teacher transfer; and effectiveness of redistribution of talent to build understanding and provoke discussion related to this concept.

What do you believe are the most productive methods for ensuring excellent educators for all students? Should teacher placement decisions be made at the school or district levels? What incentives for teacher transfer have you found to be most effective? Please respond to our call for commentary. We’d love to hear from you!
