Teacher Training/ Development Teacher training is a crucial component of student learning and general school effectiveness. Less general, teaching quality and school leadership are the most important factors in raising student achievement. For teachers and school and district leaders to be as effective as possible, they must continually expand their knowledge and skills to implement the best educational practices. Educators learn to help students learn at the highest levels. School management School administrators set the tone and culture of a school, revealed a study spearheaded by Educators for Excellence in 2012. Teachers are better able to help students when they have real support from their administrators, and this support takes a variety of forms. When administrators fail to provide support, teachers feel the consequences and, ultimately, students feel it as well. In fact, administrators are the biggest factor in teachers’ decisions to leave their schools – and leave teaching altogether. Curriculum development Teachers utilize curricula when deciding what to teach their students and when, as well as what assessments and rubrics should be, what kind of worksheets they should make, among other things. It is up to teachers themselves how these assessments, worksheets and rubrics should be made made and taught. In a practical understanding, though, there is no concrete way to say what methodology is right to utilize. But it is also true that the way in which a certain topic is taught habitually resolves what is actually taught. For this reason, it is required to make a distinction between the official or planned curriculum and the mandated curriculum: the one that is formal and the one that is actually taught in schools.
