Teacher quality is one of the most important factors in improving student achievement. As a result, federal and state law, as well as Board of Education and Department of Education strategic plans, set the important goal that all students be taught by a "highly qualified teacher" (HQT). A teacher who holds at least a bachelor's degree, has obtained full State certification, and has demonstrated knowledge in the core academic subjects he or she teaches is designated HQT.|
The links on the left provide important background information on the Department of Education plan to ensure the following:
- Every core academic class taught by a highly qualified teacher and
- Poor and minority children are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers.
