NET-Q Prepares Teachers for High-Needs Schools

Established in 2009 by a $13.5M Department of Education five year grant, the Network for Enhancing Teacher Quality (NET-Q) was developed to prepare and retain teachers for high-need subjects in high-need schools in urban and rural settings. Partners included six metro-Atlanta school systems, four Georgia colleges, Georgia Public Broadcasting, and the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future.

In this episode of the UrbanEd Podcast, Dr. DaShaunda Patterson discusses the Network For Enhancing Teacher Quality (NET-Q) grant project, and the impact it’s made to increase the number of teachers in high-needs school throughout Metro Atlanta.
