Denver is turning to taxpayers to take a teacher-mentoring program district-wide.

The project, however, has been a boon for school support staff.

The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) has announced the retirement in July 2017 of its president and CEO Dr. Sharon P. Robinson.

Ending a 12-year deadlock between the district and union, public school teachers in Buffalo, N.Y., have inked their first new contract since the last one expired in 2004.

Both union allies and charter proponents on the school board sided with the charter school teachers.

The final regulations drew praise from some critics of teacher-training quality, but some groups representing teachers see the new rules as punitive.

The U.S. Department of Education's long-awaited final rules require states to rate teachers' colleges on the basis of graduates' performance in the classroom but provide greater flexibility in measuring student outcomes.

By converting vacant schools into housing for teachers, St. Louis and Milwaukee hope are hoping to kill two birds with one stone.

State says its up to districts to use new funds to increase teacher pay.

The votes send negotiators back to the bargaining table.
