Removing Chronically Ineffective Teachers: Barriers and Opportunities

This report, produced by the Center for American Progress, focuses on the challenges in dismissing chronically ineffective teachers, those who are persistently ineffective and don’t improve with additional professional development or other types of supports. The report recommends that new types of comprehensive evaluation systems need to be put in place to provide support and feedback to teachers, and laws and policies must alter to allow for the removal of ineffective teachers in order to increase academic achievement for all students.
