As Congress begins work to reauthorize the Higher Education Act (HEA), New America released policy recommendations to improve Title II (Teacher Quality Enhancement) of HEA. These recommendations aim to strengthen educator preparation by promoting a stronger focus on innovation, quality, and equity through 1) grant programs to promote high-quality, evidence-based preparation and to address educator shortages, 2) improved data collection, reporting, and accountability requirements, 3) support for the preparation of school leaders, and 4) promotion of greater diversity among the educator workforce.
