North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards

How did we get here?

North Carolina has moved from a manufacturing and agricultural economy to a technological and research-based economy. Schools must respond to this change if children are to be ready for the future.

What happens over time?

  • Let’s consider a 65 year old born in 1943 who began school in 1948

  • Decide which decade the event belongs in:

    • 1940s

    • 1950s

    • 1960s

    • 1970s

    • 1980s

    • 1990s

    • 2000 - present

Consider a child starting Kindergarten today…

  • This child was born in 2005

  • This child was not alive when 9/11 occurred

  • The United States has been at war for this child’s entire life thus far

  • We will need to educate this child for a life that will bring retirement in 2070 or later

What might life look like in 2070?

  • robots being mentally and physically superior to humans

  • space elevators are built to the moon

  • artificial intelligence entities are awarded PhDs

We need to prepare students for the 21st Century

NORTH CAROLINA’S Educational Pipeline


In North Carolina, for every 100 9th grade students…

…70 students graduate four years later

…41 students enter college

…28 students are still enrolled in their 2nd year

…19 students graduate with either an Associate’s degree within three years or a Bachelor’s degree within six years Source:

New Standards for *Teachers, Principals & Superintendents(*includes More at Four teachers/Nonpublic Schools)

  • GS 115C-295.1 requires the NC Professional Teaching Standards Commission (Commission) to review and propose standards for teaching in North Carolina

  • In August 2006, Chairman Lee charged the Commission to review and align the standards to reflect the State Board’s newly adopted mission and goals

  • The Commission is composed of 16 practicing public school educators

  • The Commission spent 6 months in numerous meetings thinking, listening, writing, sharing with colleagues and revising

  • The draft work was completed in March 2007 and distributed through focus groups and other meetings throughout the state

  • The finalized standards were presented to the State Board of Education in May and adopted in June 2007

How are the NC Professional Teaching Standards different from the Core Standards adopted in 1998?
