Eva Moskowitz Calls for ‘Fundamental Reform’ of How We Prepare Teachers

Eva Moskowitz of Success Academy writes in The Seventy-Four about teacher pipeline and teacher shortage issues—a topic that’s gaining attention more and more lately.
If we want to truly reform education in the United States, we must fundamentally reform how we train America’s teachers. Innovative approaches like those employed by small organizations such as Success Academy to create better teacher training programs should be viewed as a model for achieving this important goal. We all know that strong teachers make a tremendous difference—maybe the greatest difference—in educational outcomes for children. As a country, we need to abandon the old, failed methods and instead foster programs that are improving teacher preparation and producing dramatic gains for children.
