On March 10, President Obama outlined his goals for education in a speech to the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. One of the pillars of his initiative is “recruiting, preparing and rewarding outstanding teachers” with incentives for a new generation of teachers and for new levels of excellence among all teachers. “President Obama has rightly targeted teacher quality as a centerpiece of his policy reforms. We are thrilled to see this focus and look forward to working with him and Secretary Duncan to make real progress,” said Sharon P. Robinson, President and CEO of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.
