20 Years After Groundbreaking Report on Teaching, a New Report Asks: What Now?


Washington, D.C. - Twenty years after the nonprofit National Commission on Teaching and America's Future released a report that pushed teaching to the forefront of the education-policy landscape, a new report seeks to revitalize the national discussion around teacher quality.

"What Matters Now: A Call to Action," released at a forum in the nation's capital today, offers several policy and practice recommendations to support and improve teaching and learning, while also serving as a retrospective of the teaching profession following the 1996 report, "What Matters Most: Teaching for America's Future."

Back then, NCTAF's commissioners, led by James Hunt, Jr., the then-governor of North Carolina, issued an urgent call for education leaders and lawmakers to reevaluate the scattered policies governing the teaching profession and ensure that all students had access to effective teachers. They called for a serious revamp of teacher-preparation programs, the creation of compensation policies that reward teachers' knowledge and skill, and the development of higher standards for both initial licensing and continuing development.
