Kate Walsh has served as the president of the National Council on Teacher Quality since 2003. Driven by the belief that relevant, broadly-accessible, comparative data can transform teacher quality, Walsh has spearheaded efforts to instill greater transparency and higher standards among those institutions that exert influence and authority over teachers: states, districts, and teacher preparation programs. Notably, she produced the first-ever report card on the quality of the nation's teacher preparation programs. A relentless advocate for equitable access to great teachers, Walsh's work has been widely featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, NPR, and PBS NewsHour, among others.
