Vaishali Honawar, Teachers Achieving ‘Highly Qualified’ Status on the Rise, Education Week, June 6, 2008.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, fewer core classes were taught by “highly qualified” teachers in high poverty schools than in lower poverty schools nationwide during the 2006-07 school years. The “highly qualified” teacher requirement is a provision from the No Child Left Behind Act and is determined by each state individually and therefore making cross state comparisons difficult. Despite the negative implications, the overall rate increased 7% since the 2003-04 school year.
