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.
