AJC’s Special Investigation on Teacher Quality

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution just published part five in an occasional investigative series on the state of teaching in Georgia, looking into the state’s recruitment and retention strategies, teacher preparation models and its largely unsuccessful efforts to fire ineffective teachers.

There’s a lot of great reporting here, and though it is behind the AJC paywall, the paper has been kind enough to make PDFs of the stories available exclusively to EMC members. You can find each of the current five parts linked at the bottom of this message.

If you want some insight into the package, the AJC’s Jamie Sarrio is on EMC and would surely answer a few questions about it. Thanks to her and her colleagues for the access, and for their hard work on an excellent series.
