News show focuses on teacher quality.

High-quality, effective teaching, as well as innovative approaches to better recruit and retain exceptional teachers, will be the focus of the May edition of Education News Parents Can Use, the U.S. Department of Education's monthly television program.

All across the country, highly qualified teachers are inspiring excellence in students. The May broadcast will showcase several award-winning teachers and explore how effective teaching is at the core of America's long-term economic competitiveness. Among the many features are: an overview of the current state of the teaching profession and what is being done to place a high-quality teacher in every classroom; innovative and alternative strategies to recruit, train and reward effective teachers; and how programs like the Teacher Incentive Fund, along with the proposed Adjunct Teacher Corps and other teacher quality programs under the American Competitiveness Initiative, are designed to strengthen our nation's teachers, schools and students.

Each month, Education News Parents Can Use showcases: schools and school districts from across the country; conversations with school officials, parents and education experts; and advice and free resources for parents and educators.
