Part 1: Building a Comprehensive Path Toward Being a Professional Educator

Turnover in the teaching profession is higher than ever, especially in critical instructional areas such as STEM, special education, and in highly impoverished geographic areas. The most frequently cited reasons for leaving the profession include lack of administrative support, dissatisfaction with teaching as a career, and dissatisfaction with working conditions.

Designed for district and school leaders, this guide from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and BloomBoard provides a deeper look at educator career pathways and the role competency-based professional learning plays in supporting educator career and compensation advancement. You’ll learn about the benefits of competency-based professional learning and how developing well-articulated career pathways aligned to specific competencies could be one solution to helping teachers envision a more robust career that sustains them in the profession.

This guide is Part 1 of a 3-part series on Redefining Educator Career Pathways. Parts 2 and 3 will be released soon.
