U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith is among the primary sponsors of a Senate resolution that recognizes the importance and contributions of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT), a program embraced by the state of Mississippi in its quest to improve educational achievement.

The resolution, also sponsored by U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Katie Britt (R-Ala.), and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), encourages administrators, school districts, and states to promote the growth of certification programs and also designates a “National Board Certified Teacher Week.”

“Educational achievement among Mississippi students has made great strides in recent years, a fact that can be attributed in part to our state’s efforts to encourage more educators to become certified,” said Hyde-Smith.  “Our bipartisan resolution endorses the National Board Certified Teachers program and seeks its growth into more classrooms.”
