This week the National Board submitted recommendations to Congress to build a strong teaching workforce through the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), formerly known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The recommendations include building a continuum that supports teacher growth; strengthening entry into the profession; improving ongoing professional learning, including pathways to Board certification; and creating opportunities for teacher leadership.
At the same time, the National Board submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Education on its proposed teacher preparation regulations, drawing from the example of the rigorous training and residency programs in the medical profession.
