The National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality (NCCTQ) is the premier national resource to which the regional comprehensive assistance centers, states, and other education stakeholders turn for strengthening the quality of teaching—especially in high-poverty, low-performing, and hard-to-staff schools—and for finding guidance in addressing specific needs, thereby ensuring highly qualified teachers are serving students with special needs.

NCCTQ, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is a collaborative effort of Education Commission of the States, ETS, Learning Point Associates, and Vanderbilt University.
