A new report released today by the not-for-profit, non-partisan National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) finds major advances in teacher policy across the country, largely driven by state adoption of policies for including student achievement as a measure of effectiveness in teacher evaluations, and using teacher effectiveness evidence in decisions about teacher tenure and dismissal.

Rhode Island earns one of the highest grades given by NCTQ and ranks number five in the nation on progress against NCTQ's 36 research-based goals.
