Catalyst Critical Conversation: Attracting and Keeping Good Teachers

Short Description: 

The most important in-school factor in a student’s success is a strong teacher. That’s a bit of common sense that has solid research to back it up. By extension, schools and their students would benefit greatly from putting a premium on attracting and keeping strong teachers.  So how do they do that?  That question will be the focus of “Attracting and Keeping Good Teachers,” the third and final Critical Conversation forum in Catalyst’s 25th anniversary year.
