According to the US Department of Education’s Civil Rights Data Collection, nearly 96 percent of our nation’s public school teachers are licensed and certified. So why are so many low-income and minority students still being taught in schools with the highest percentages of unqualified and inexperienced teachers? In an effort to close educator equity gaps, the department is requiring states to devise plans that ensure all students have equitable access to excellent educators – and the deadline, June 1, is fast approaching.

What policy strategies and programs can effectively close these teaching gaps, and how can state boards of education support implementation and keep up the momentum for the long haul?

Join NASBE for a webinar on May 14, 2015, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EDT), for a discussion about teacher equity gaps and what can be done, both in policy and practice, to ensure a more equitable distribution of excellent teachers across our nation’s schools. Ellen Sherratt from the American Institutes for Research’s Center on Great Teachers and Leaders will present her work on the subject.
