As Congress considers reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act, policymakers, advocates, and parents are concerned about how to meet the requirement that states provide every student with high-quality teachers. To address these concerns, Brookings and Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School released the latest volume of The Future of Children journal, “Excellence in the Classroom.”

On March 28 a slate of panelists including members of Congress, journal contributors, and other researchers and administrators, discussed options for improving teacher quality including in-service training, mentoring, and the recruitment of new, high-quality teachers.
