America's Teacher Corps - The report proposes a new federal program, America's Teacher Corps, to support the development of effective teacher evaluation systems at the district and state level in order to keep the best teachers in the classroom, enhance the likelihood that more qualified people will enter teaching, provide opportunities for potentially good teachers to realize their potential through additional support and development and encourage qualified teachers to teach in hard-to-staff schools. Highly effective teachers would receive national recognition and, conditional on service in high-poverty schools, a substantial salary bonus and a portable credential.
