This issue brief provides an overview of the The Prichard Committee’s Team on Teacher Effectiveness initial findings related to Kentucky’s efforts to support and enhance the success of beginning teachers. The information presented in this report reflects the Team’s research and review of state policies and efforts.
Specifically, this brief summarizes findings from the 2011 Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Kentucky survey, review of Kentucky’s mandatory Teacher Internship Program (KTIP) and input received directly from teachers through presentations and interviews with the Team.
The Team will consider this and other information in crafting its final recommendations for policy and practice changes to improve teaching quality in Kentucky. The Team’s final report is to be published by the end of 2013.
