Is North Carolina still a national leader in education

John Hood doesn’t think so. And he’s got the backing of the National Council on Teacher Quality:

When it comes to attracting, training, retaining, and rewarding excellent teachers, North Carolina is not a national leader. Don’t take my word for it. A new report from the National Council on Teacher Quality points to Massachusetts, Colorado, Florida, Delaware, Louisiana, and the District of Columbia as national leaders in teacher policy.

Other Southern states with higher rankings than North Carolina included Tennessee, Virginia, Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas. They are more likely than North Carolina to apply sound principles and the latest educational research to the task of increasing the effectiveness of public-school teachers.
