ESSA │Developing and Supporting Educators
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) offers states the opportunity to take a new approach to using federal funds to better prepare, recruit, develop, and retain great educators for all students. By engaging in this critical work, states can align with existing efforts and improve the overall equity of their state education systems.
The Center on Great Teachers in particular is at the forefront of supporting states with this work, and offers recommendations for high-leverage educator effectiveness strategies for use within ESSA in this Vision paper Time for Action: Building the Educator Workforce Our Children Need.
