Abstract

"The paper tackles what we are calling “infrastructure” or the foundation needed for states to use information about teachers,3 such as robust data systems, professional standards for teaching, and rigorous evaluation systems. It then describes how states might better coordinate their policies on evaluation, tenure, and licensure. Finally, it outlines strategies for leveraging the expertise of highly effective teachers, working proactively with moderate performers to improve their skills, and taking urgent action with ineffective teachers to improve their performance or exit them from the classroom."
