Building a Strong and Diverse Teacher and Principal Recruitment Pipeline
Every student deserves to be taught and led by excellent teachers and school leaders. Unfortunately, many high-need schools and students, especially low-income students, students of color, and students with disabilities, do not have equitable access to well-prepared and well-supported educators. To address this reality, policies must be shaped by a comprehensive vision of teaching quality, not just educator effectiveness. Help us state our case to legislators throughout the country.
The word on social media
Smart investments in establishing robust and diverse teacher and principal recruitment pipelines can bring significant returns to students.
To strengthen the teacher recruitment pipeline, the Coalition for Teaching Quality (CTQ) recommends that policymakers:
A. Invest in programs that meet local workforce needs;
B. Support high-quality early opportunities for secondary school students to explore teaching as a potential career path;
C. Expand investments in grant and loan forgiveness opportunities for prospective teachers; and
D. Diversify the workforce.
