Representative Clarke Tucker

From Representative Tucker: "National Board Certification represents an assurance to the public that teachers have met the profession's highest standards for accomplished practice, and the presence of NBCTs demonstrates a school's commitment to excellence to students, parents, school boards, school districts, and communities.

Arkansas offers comprehensive support to teachers interested in pursuing Board Certification, including fee support, a candidate support program, as well as an annual bonus after certification.  The support system works, as Arkansas consistently ranks among the top 10 states with the newest NBCTs.  More important, we see the difference these teachers make in their students' lives on a daily basis.  NBCTs don't just inspire their students, they transform their lives, and I hope for the day that every classroom in Arkansas is led by a National Board Certified Teacher."
