America's Challenge: Effective Teachers for At-Risk Schools and Students



Webcast Overview

Thursday, October 11, 2007
3–4:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

Discussion Overview
In the two short years since the launch of the National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality (NCCTQ), a tremendous amount of information has been compiled regarding the availability, recruitment, and retention of teachers for at-risk schools and students.

NCCTQ has compiled much of this information in its inaugural biennial report, America's Challenge: Effective Teachers for At-Risk Schools and Students. On October 11, NCCTQ will introduce the biennial report, summarize some of its most important findings, and tell some stories from the field—with a focus on teachers of students with special needs. Also included will be some never-before-released polling data on teachers in their first year of teaching, collected by the public opinion firm Public Agenda.
