Thank you for printing Lisa Schiff’s timely article on the Education Foundation-West’s study on the “Hidden Gap.”
I agree with the Foundation’s statement that all schools should have a mix of new and experienced teachers who are eager and enthusiastic about teaching. The key is how do you keep motivated, experienced teachers in every school-including those with a high percentage of students that receive free/reduced lunches and schools with a high percentage of African-American and Latino students?
Great job, Lisa! Your articles are one of the highlights of Thursdays for me!
