Minnesota has become a leader in a nationwide effort to better ensure that teachers beginning their careers are truly prepared to teach effectively. This initiative revolves around the edTPA assessment process, which requires teacher candidates to demonstrate the skills needed to enter the classroom ready to help all their students learn.
