18 Why focus on Teacher Professional Development? Research shows that each dollar spent on recruiting high-quality teachers and deepening their knowledge and skills nets greater gains in student learning than any other use of an education dollar.(Ferguson, Greenwald, Hedges, & Laine as cited in Darling-Hammond, 1997, p.1)Why is so much emphasis placed on teacher professional development?One reason - Teacher expertise, teacher quality, is the single most important determinant of student achievement.
