Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires all teachers of
core academic subjects to demonstrate ESEA teacher quality compliance.
The federal definition of a Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) is three
fold: teachers must hold at least a bachelors degree, be appropriately
licensed by the state, and demonstrate subject matter competency.
