1 Description: The percentage of core academic classes in high-poverty elementary schools taught by teachers that were highly qualified. ; Academic Year: 2008-09; Grade: N/A; Note: The state-reported percentage of core academic classes in high-poverty elementary schools taught by teachers that were highly qualified. 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. High-poverty schools are defined under Section 1111(h)(1)(c)(viii) of ESEA as schools in the top quartile of poverty in the state. 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, 2008-09: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 09/19/2011
