The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) was established in 1987 with the goal of setting high standards for the teaching profession. North Carolina’s Governor Hunt served as the first chair of the NBPTS Board of Directors, and today, the state has the largest number of National Board Certified teachers in the country. Today, over 20 percent of North Carolina’s educators are Board-certified. This is good news for our students, as the majority of research suggests that students of National Board-certified teachers make higher gains in achievement compared to non-NBPTS certified teachers.
