“Addressing Inequities in the Distribution of Highly Qualified and Effective Teachers: A Workshop to Move Research and Policy Into Action”

TQ Center Workshop
June 30–July 1, 2009
Rosemont, Illinois

Participants attended working sessions focused on three criteria essential to the development of actionable steps toward addressing equitable distribution issues:

  • Defining equitable distribution metrics for their state

  • Working with local education agencies to collect and analyze data

  • Aligning state needs with action strategies

Workbook:Thinking Systemically: Steps for States to Improve Equity in the Distribution of Teachers
The TQ Center designed this equitable distribution workbook to facilitate discussion between SEA and regional comprehensive center (RCC) staff. The workbook provides a process to take states and their RCC support staff through a series of steps that the TQ Center sees as vital to promoting equitable distribution.
