Elevating the Teaching Profession

More than 80 percent of Americans agreed that teachers should achieve Board certification in addition to being licensed to practice, similar to professions like law and medicine, according to results from a national poll by PDK International and Gallup released in September 2014.

Total National Board Certified Teachers in Minnesota ChartOver a decade’s worth of research shows that the students of Board-certified teachers outperform their peers in other classrooms on achievement tests and that schools and districts with a high concentration of NBCTs see marked improvements in school culture, collaboration and teacher retention. To achieve dramatic improvement in education for all students, National Board is working with state, district and higher education partners to ensure that many more teachers have the opportunity to pursue Board certification.
