National Board For Professional Teaching Standards Joins P21





Partnership Boosts Effort to Prepare Teachers to Support 21 st Century Learning 

WASHINGTON, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Partnership for 21 st Century Skills (P21) welcomes the addition of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to the leading national organization advocating for 21st century readiness for every student. Ron Thorpe, National Board president and CEO, will represent the organization on P21's Strategic Council.  

"We are delighted to add the National Board's strong voice to P21's Strategic Council," said Frank Gallagher, Chair of P21 and Executive Director of Cable in the Classroom. "Ron has been a major advocate of 21 st century skills for many years, and we are pleased to be working with him in highlighting the best teaching practices and educational leadership."    

The National Board is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to elevating the status, voice, and role of accomplished teachers in shaping the teaching profession and raising student achievement. Since 1987, more than 100,000 teachers in all 50 states have achieved National Board Certification, a rigorous, peer-reviewed and performance-based process that certifies that these educators – similar to their counterparts in law and medicine -- have met the profession's highest standards. Nearly 50 percent of NBCTs work in high poverty schools. More than 15 percent of NBCTs are certified in STEM-related fields.

"Every student in America needs to be prepared to succeed in today's global economy, and every teacher needs to have the support and tools necessary to help their students meet that goal," said Thorpe. "I am thrilled to be representing the National Board at P21. After 25 years of setting the highest standards for accomplished teaching, we are looking forward to working with P21 on its efforts to prepare and support all teachers in meeting this important challenge."
