States and districts have the flexibility to creatively use Title II, Part A funds to address teacher quality issues. Currently, three strategies predominate—class size reduction, professional development, and recruitment, induction, and retention of highly qualified teachers. Each strategy is implemented with the intention of improving teaching quality and, by extension, student achievement. This compendium of research briefs, published by the Northwest Comprehensive Center, looks at which strategies are most effective, given organizational and structural constraints. The information is intended to help inform states and districts as they plan their Title II, Part A, fund designations.
