North Carolina continues to lead in National Board Certified teachers

NCCAT says a huge congratulations to North Carolina teachers for this accomplishment.

From NC DPI

With 557 North Carolina teachers earning their national certification this month, North Carolina continues to lead the nation with the most teachers holding the credential from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Nearly 22,000 teachers in North Carolina have attained the respected national certification, which is based on a rigorous performance-based assessment that typically takes from one to three years to complete and measures what accomplished teachers and counselors should know and be able to do. Nationally, 3,970 teachers earned certification in 2017-18, raising the total among all states to more than 122,034. In addition, almost 4,446 teachers nationally achieved recertification, including 946 board-certified teachers in North Carolina.
