The U.S. Department of Education (USED) required all State educational agencies (SEAs) to submit a new State Educator Equity Plan in accordance with the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). In its plan, each SEA must, among other things, describe the steps it will take to ensure that “poor and minority children are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers.” The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) submitted its State Plan to Ensure Equitable Access to Excellent Educators on June 1, 2015. North Carolina’s plan was approved by USED on November 18, 2015.
