Teaching

Did you know Florida has been recognized for high-quality teacher policies? Florida was ranked number one in the nation by the National Council on Teacher Quality in 2012, and now we’ve done it again in 2014. That means Florida teachers are leading the nation in areas like retaining effective teachers, making sure new teachers enter the classroom well-prepared and identifying teachers who are helping students achieve more.

The Florida Department of Education provides resources to school districts, universities and educators to help ensure that the state's educational workforce becomes highly effective in improving student achievement.
