No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title II, Part A ensures that all K-12 students have teachers with subject matter knowledge and teaching skills necessary to help all students achieve high academic standards regardless of their individual learning styles or needs. All public elementary or secondary teachers employed to teach core academic subjects should have been designated “highly qualified” by the end of the 2006-2007 academic year. All “new” hires in a Title I school must be "highly qualified" prior to the first day of employment. All general education core content teachers must be “highly qualified”. Parents of children in Title I schools must be notified if their child has been assigned to, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who is not highly qualified.
