Every Connecticut student must have access to highly effective and diverse teachers.

But we are off track.

Ongoing teacher shortages and a complicated certification system have made it difficult for Connecticut to ensure that all children have access to highly effective and diverse teachers.

​Numerous stakeholders have worked to identify the high-level barriers in Connecticut’s

system of preparation and certification—including the CT Innovation Cohort, state officials, district administrators, teachers, advocates, business leaders, and the higher education community.


Many of these barriers disproportionately impact candidates of color.
