  • Center for Teaching Quality

    One of the key points of the demographic is to point out that just hiring more bodies to fill teaching spots in the classroom is not the answer. Teacher-prep programs MUST be improved to prepare our teachers for the complexities of today's classrooms. Quality is as important as quantity. With a 50% attrition rate of our teachers within the first 5 years, we must focus on better teaching conditions and better training to retain our best educators.

    We are having conversations about how to innovate teacher retention and quality through ideas like teacherpreneurs. Join our community to hear our solutions to this problem! www.teachinquality.org
