The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by NCLB, requires states to have a 'highly qualified teacher' in every classroom. Under ESEA, a highly qualified teacher is one who (1) has a bachelor's degree, (2) has full state certification or licensure, and (3) has demonstrated subject matter competency in the subject they teach. Core academic classes include English, reading/language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography.; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2007-08: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 09/29/2010
