Effective Teaching

We want to assure that every Kentucky student has a highly qualified, well-supported and well-trained teacher. We advocate for developing a teacher evaluation system that provides feedback to build the profession and improve practice; enacting a differentiated pay system for educators; creating and strengthening teacher academies; developing a comprehensive strategy to attract more highly-qualified teachers to science and math; focusing on the recruitment and retention of teachers and the quality of their work environment, and adopting a means of measuring improvement: e.g., increasing the number of nationally certified teachers and reducing teacher dropout rates.
