Influencing Providers to Increase Pathways

The Influencing Providers section describes the key levers, metrics, and strategies for increasing multiple preparation pathways to increase the supply of effective teachers and leaders.  The State team can utilize the resources to influence college/university and alternative providers to increase numbers and effectiveness of teachers and leaders they provide.

It is tricky to increase the supply of effective teachers and principals AND keep quality high at the same time. We have found effective strategies to accomplish both of these.
