Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative

Posted by on March 25, 2005

We know that children can learn. Many teachers are getting impressive results and eliminating the achievement gap in schools and classrooms across the country. Research confirms that teachers are the single most important factor in raising student achievement. Students arrive in the classroom with many different backgrounds and experiences, each bringing its own set of opportunities and challenges. Highly qualified teachers can maximize every child’s potential to meet high academic standards. Teachers are key to fulfilling the promise of No Child Left Behind. The U.S Department of Education has a whole set of new activities to support quality teachers, including lesson plans, online videos, free summer workshops and a host of e-learning opportunities on how to improve student performance.
