Supporting Teachers and School Leaders

The single most important factor in determining a child's success in school is the quality of his or her teacher. We ask our teachers to perform miracles every day in our under-funded and over-crowded schools. To produce a highly competitive and innovative workforce tomorrow, we must attract the best qualified teachers to our classrooms today. To help achieve this, Committee Democrats are committed to advancing policies to help states invest in the people who commit their lives to helping students reach their full potential.
