VA Governor Creates Advisory Teacher Cabinet

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A new advisory group will offer guidance to the governor and Department of Education secretary on Virginia's teaching policies.
    
An executive order issued Wednesday by Gov. Bob McDonnell establishes the Governor's Teacher Cabinet.
    
McDonald says the cabinet's members will be teachers from across Virginia. They will make both long-term and short-term recommendations on ways to enhance teacher leadership, quality and professionalism.
    
The cabinet's responsibilities include identifying additional resources, learning tools and professional development opportunities that could be made available to local school divisions.
    
McDonnell encouraged full-time teachers to apply to serve on the cabinet.
