The reports below are authored by members of two New England Secondary School Consortium task forces: the Task Force on Diversifying the Educator Workforce; and the Task Force on Flexible and Multiple Pathways. The NESSC Leads commissioned these task forces, whose recommendations emerged over the course of meetings taking place during 2019 and 2020. While each participating NESSC state education agency is committed to equitable pathways and diversifying the educator workforce, the recommendations included in these reports do not necessarily mean that they have the formal endorsement of the participating agencies.
