Welcome to NCREL's Teacher Quality Web site. NCREL is committed to creating products, research, and services that support a deeper understanding of the teacher-quality issues facing the seven-state Midwest region as well as the nation.

Qualified Teachers for At-Risk Schools: A National Imperative
The National Partnership for Teaching in At-Risk Schools—a collaborative effort of the Education Commission of the States, ETS, and Learning Point Associates, with additional funding from the Joyce Foundation—developed this report in response to the urgent need to recruit and retain quality teachers in at-risk, hard-to-staff schools.

Teaching Quality (TQ) Source Web site
The Teaching Quality (TQ) Source Web site brings together in-depth, reliable research on policies and programs to help policymakers and educators make informed decisions on teaching quality. The TQ Source identifies policies and initiatives that impact fundamental issues of teaching quality, including teacher preparation, recruitment, and retention. An interactive data tool permits dynamic analyses of local, state, and national trends; the online publications database brings together the best research in the field of teacher quality for fast, easy reference. The TQ Source Web site was developed jointly by Learning Point Associates and the Education Commission of the States.
