No Child Left Behind Act: More Information Would Help States Determine Which Teachers Are Highly Qualified - This study surveyed 50 states and the District of Columbia and a nationally representative sample of districts about their plans to implement the highly qualified teacher provisions of NCLB. It found that states did not have the information needed to determine whether all teachers met the criteria and that data systems to track teacher qualifications for each core subject they teach were often nonexistent. The report recommends that the Secretary of Education provide more information to states, especially on ways to evaluate the subject-area knowledge of current teachers.
