2010 Class of NBCTs Is Announced

More than 8,600 teachers and school counselors achieved National Board Certification in 2010, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards said this week. That brings the total number of National Board Certified Teachers—half of whom teach in Title 1, high-needs schools—up to 91,000.

North Carolina had the highest number of teachers to receive the certification, with 2,277. Washington was close behind with 1,272, and Illinois came in third with 771, according to NBPTS.
