Wisconsin Quality Educator Initiative (PI 34)
This initiative was built on the premise that we would have a seamless system of educator development that began in pre-service preparation and continued throughout an educator's career. This would ensure a quality workforce to meet the human capital needs of our Wisconsin school districts. With a forecasted national shortage of educators, it is time to take stock of where we are at now and plan strategically for our future.
Beginning in April 2015, the Professional Standards Council (PSC) conducted a review and began the development of a state strategic plan. A resource that guides the review process is the Talent Development Framework for 21st Century Educators: Moving Toward State Policy Alignment and Coherence (2014) by the Center on Great Teachers & Leaders at the American Institutes for Research.
Each part of the framework is explained below:
- Project Overview
- Talent Development Framework Visual
- Wisconsin Quality Educator Initiative State Scan Document
- Professional Standards Council Draft Strategic Plan Recommendations - Nov 2016
- Learning Policy Institute
- Public Policy Forum Report - Help Wanted: An analysis of teacher pipeline in metro Milwaukee
