Alabama Education Human Capital Roundtable


Alabama Teacher Quantity and Quality Roundtable

The Alabama Teacher Quantity and Quality Roundtable was formed in September 2019 when the Alabama Department of Education, at the direction of State Superintendent Eric Mackey, convened a group of K-12 education advocates and association leaders, higher education deans and state-level government representatives to continue the work of the Alabama Teacher Shortage Taskforce. Supported by a team of policy specialists, researchers and facilitators from SREB, the TQ2 Roundtable focuses on seeking innovative solutions to the teacher shortage crisis.

This final report from the Alabama Teacher Quantity and Quality Roundtable outlines its recommended three-pronged approach, which focuses on career pathways, early-career support and advancement opportunities.
