California’s Teaching Force 2010: Key Issues and Trends (Summary)

Produced by The Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd

Description

This summary report, produced by the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd, illustrates the impact of budget cuts and policy shifts on California’s teaching workforce.

Cumulative cuts of more than $20 billion from California’s schools have made it tougher for teachers to help students meet increasing expectations for academic achievement and have badly damaged the state’s ability to recruit and prepare new teachers.

The report also examines the state’s system of teacher evaluation and makes clear the critical need for an effective data system to strengthen education in the state.
