Quality of Teachers

A national study says states are not doing enough to keep good teachers and remove bad ones.

New Mexico and Iowa are the only states that require evidence that public school teachers are effective before granting them tenure.

The National Council on Teacher Quality gave New Mexico a "C" grade overall.

The president of the group says states can help school districts do much more to ensure that the right teachers stay and the wrong teachers leave.
