Systems That Last: Great Teachers and Leaders for America's Schools


The primary goals of the conference were to demonstrate the impact the comprehensive center system of technical assistance and dissemination has had on the nation and to build the capacity of participants to make informed and strategic decisions about educator effectiveness from a systems perspective, especially in light of current federal and state policy developments. The National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality 2012 Conference was designed to provide the most current and accurate information on research, practice, and federal foci and opportunities to address teacher and leader effectiveness and equitable distribution of teachers in schools, especially in high-poverty, low-performing, and hard-to-staff schools.
