Getting to Excellence A Legislator’s Guide to Educator Effectiveness Policy

NCSL’s Educator Effectiveness Partnership created this publication as a guide for state legislators as they consider policies that support educators and improve the quality of teaching. It provides an overview of the major areas of educator policy, lists questions state legislators might ask as they consider their own policy context, and offers policy options states are considering. The information presented in this publication was gleaned from Partnership meetings during the past year with education policy experts and from the partners’ own expertise and experience.  The Partnership met throughout 2011 to hear from researchers and experts on the issue, and shared their own expertise to determine the most effective and efficient policies. The work culminated in this guide.
