What does "HQT" mean?

A key goal of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act is that every student will receive instruction from a “highly qualified” teacher (HQT). To be considered “highly qualified” under NCLB, a teacher of core academic content must possess:

1.      A bachelor’s degree

2.      A teaching or intern credential, and

3.      Demonstrated core academic subject matter competence

The core academic content areas include: multiple/general subjects, English, reading/language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics/government, economics, history, geography, and the arts.
