Teacher commitment matters more than certification or experience

Well....I guess that's not to hard to understand. Committed teachers in early grades who take personal responsibility for student learning tend to produce more learning growth.

LoGerfo's other findings reinforce other widely held precepts - supportive leadership makes a difference, Catholic schools tend to show higher commitment than public schools.

As we work on getting the models right, it will be important to make sure that teacher practice and perceptions make it into the mix.
