Over the last 25 years the National Board has advanced the teaching profession by establishing and maintaining the definitive standards of accomplished teaching and certifying more than 100,000 teachers across the country against those rigorous standards.
That number is significant but too small in a profession of more than 3 million practitioners. To make the dramatic improvements we all seek in education for every student, National Board Certification needs to be the norm, not the exception. It also must be what the profession expects and is designed to support.
To meet this goal, the National Board is revising the certification process while maintaining the integrity and transformative nature of National Board Certification.
