State governments reign over the teaching profession

State governments are arguably the most powerful authority over the teaching profession. Since 2007, NCTQ has tracked and analyzed teacher policies across all 50 states and the District of Columbia in our State Teacher Policy Yearbook. The Yearbook presents the most detailed analysis available of each state's performance against, and progress toward, a set of specific, research-based teacher policy goals aimed at helping states build a comprehensive policy framework in support of teacher effectiveness.

The State Teacher Policy Yearbook

summarizes how the states are doing in developing policies that improve the teaching profession.

How are the nation's institutions that train tomorrow's teachers doing?  The second edition of NCTQ's comprehensive Teacher Prep Review has the answers.  This edition is one third bigger than last year's, and features program rankings, so that teacher prep's consumers can readily know which are the best bets.
