Equitable Distribution of Teachers

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 | 3 p.m. ET/ 2 p.m. CT/ 1 p.m. MT/ Noon. PT

Teacher effectiveness is the single most important school-related factor associated with a student’s success. An important part of ensuring equity in education is ensuring that poor and minority students are not taught by unqualified teachers at a higher rate than their peers. No Child Left Behind required that states focus on this area, and the Office of Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education, which has the authority to investigate inequities that affect poor and minority students, is actively reviewing state compliance. The Obama administration has also sought funding for a new competitive grant program, which if funded would provide some resources to help grantees enhance their data systems to focus on the districts, schools, and student groups with the greatest disparities in opportunity and performance.  Equitable distribution of teachers is part of the conversation about how best to use teacher evaluations being implemented in the states.
