An Act to enable the working group for educator excellence.
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              SECTION 1.

              The General Court finds that, in our current education system, the ten

              processes that are designed to support educator quality are

              frequently disconnected, undermining their collective capacity to

              support and sustain educator excellence, and depleting resources

              from schools; and,

              The General Court further finds that when the components of this

              system are organized to align with one another and with a common,

              research-based, field-tested core of professional knowledge, the

              cumulative result is a more effective, unified and efficient system.

              That system will produce high expertise teaching for more students,

              resulting in their improved achievement; and,

              Therefore, the General Court finds that the passage of this act is

              necessary to address the problem of lack of continuity and connection

              by promoting adoption of a validated common core of professional

              teaching knowledge that is integral to all the levers of influence on

              teacher quality and expertise in a coordinated and sustainable

              manner.
