Standing at the Head of the Class: Promoting Great Teaching in Oregon

Teaching quality is the most effective and efficient way to boost student achievement, research suggests. Although Oregonians recently rejected a proposed ballot measure tying teacher pay to performance, one local school district is already testing a variation on this theme. Working collaboratively, teachers and administrators developed an affordable plan for raising teaching quality and rewarding teaching excellence. Known as the CLASS Project (creative leadership achieves student success), the plan attempts to boost student achievement by expanding career and compensation options for teachers. On June 5th, a panel of experts will discuss how to promote great teaching in Oregon.
