National Board Teachers Might Be Rock Hill School's Most Valuable Asset

The Monday Charlotte Observer reports a Harvard study of effectiveness in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, to be released on Tuesday, says "Advanced degrees and experience make little difference in student achievement. National Board Certification, a voluntary, credential that requires intensive work on classroom techniques, matters more."

Parents, when asked the question, would you want your child in a classroom with 35 students and a highly qualified teacher, or 20 students and a regular teacher, overwhelmingly picked the class with 35 students.

This may be too little, too late. The Rock Hill School District does not seem to be in step with the Harvard folks.
