Overview of QTEA
The Quality Teacher and Education Act (QTEA) - Proposition A approved in 2008 and in place for 20 years (2028) - makes San Francisco teacher salaries competitive with those in surrounding school districts; provides financial incentives for teachers to work at schools with historically high turnover and teach in hard-to-fill subject areas such as high school math; increases teacher support while raising teacher accountability; improves academic innovation through research and development; and upgrades school technologies.
