Teacher Effectiveness: Great Teachers and Great Leaders


The objective of this research grant is to support development of the teacher effectiveness section of North Carolina’s proposal to the U.S. Department of Education for a portion of the $4 billion in federal stimulus funding through the Race to the Top (RTTT) education reform initiative. A by-product will be greater collaboration on improving educator effectiveness in the state among state agencies, the UNC system, educator associations, and private organizations.
