This report presents findings from the first year of a three-year study on the implementation and effect of the Quality Teacher and Education Act (QTEA) in San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD).
This study follows a 3-stage analytic process:
- Document the passage of QTEA*
- Research QTEA’s implementation
- Evaluate the effect of QTEA
This report presents findings from the first year of implementation (2009-10).
- The focus of the research featured in this report is first year implementation, but we also provide a brief overview of implementation in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years for reference.
*This phase of the work has been completed. For a case study narrative of the passage of QTEA, see http://gse.berkeley.edu/research/pace/reports/WP.09-4.pdf for a policy brief on the lessons learned from the process, see http://gse.berkeley.edu/research/pace/reports/PB.09-2.pdf
