Does Highly Qualified Mean High-Quality?

Abstract

"Research tells us what educators have long known: teaching quality is the essential component to raising student achievement. The critical question is whether NCLB and its "highly qualified" teacher provisions -- in statute, nonregulatory guidance, state reaction, and, most importantly, implementation in classrooms throughout the country -- will lead to the recruitment, retention, and continued support of quality teachers."
