Report: Ohio Improves Teacher Quality Policy

Ohio shows progress in trying to improve the quality of the state's teachers, a new national report concludes.

The National Council on Teacher Quality gives the state a "C+" grade overall for 2011, up from "D+" two years earlier. The research and policy group that seeks a better national teacher force says Ohio is among the most improved states, ranking 11th in progress and tied for fifth overall.

Ohio gets better marks for steps to expand its pool of potential teachers, teacher preparation, identifying effective teachers and removing ineffective ones.

Republican Gov. John Kasich has made teacher reforms a priority.
