Document Number: 4993Teaching at Risk: A Call to Action - This report's purpose is to offer specific policy recommendations to ensure student learning, rather than teacher protection, is a priority. The report calls for an "intense, sustained, and effective campaign to revamp our country's teaching force." The authors make recommendations regarding changing how teachers are paid, how teacher education must be revamped and made a priority by college and university presidents, and how states need to improve – or overhaul – their licensing and certification requirements.
