With more than 240,000 new teachers hired each year in the United States, ensuring students’ access to equitable teaching depends on providing beginning teachers with quality support and ongoing development.

Students of color, students from low-income families, as well as students with disabilities and English language learners, are taught disproportionately by first-year teachers. These beginning teachers too often lack on-going support from a qualified, trained mentor. In addition, they are more likely to lack certification in the subject they are assigned to teach and are less likely to stay in their initial teaching placement. The implications are dire for students with varied academic and social needs, who too often pay the price for the churn created by high teacher turnover rates and repeated hiring of novice teachers.

The webinar focused on NTC’s partnerships with states and districts in scaling proven approaches for accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers and increasing their retention. Panelists will highlight the research on comprehensive induction, trends in state teacher policies, and a systems approach to creating supportive teaching and learning conditions.

In conjunction with the webinar, the Alliance released a new reportOne Year Later: Can State Equity Plans Improve Access to Great Teaching?—that provides an overview of states’ teacher equity plans and highlights promising approaches for eliminating chronic disparities in teaching quality.
