Every Child Deserves Our Best Teachers: Recommendations from North Carolina's National Board Certified Teachers on How to Support and Staff High-Needs Schools - This report contains recommendations from North Carolina's National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) on how to support and staff high-needs schools. Beyond financial incentives, a comprehensive approach is recommended that takes into account the working conditions that North Carolina's NBCTs say are necessary to attract, promote, and sustain quality teaching in a school, including: (1) skillful administrators; (2) sufficient curriculum resources; (3) a high quality, results-driven professional development program; and (4) the time for teachers to reflect collaboratively on student data and their own teaching practice. (Barnett Berry and Bill Ferriter, National Education Association and the Center for Teaching Quality, 2006)...
