None of the high-performing countries they studied offers anything like alternative certification or programs like Teach for America, Elliott said.
The study canvassed more than 300 executives and the results showed that, "Respondents expressed a significantly increased interest in alternative rating systems such as Green Globes, EnergyStar and others, with 43 percent of respondents saying they would be extremely or very likely to seek alternative certification [from LEED[R]], significantly more than the 2012 number of 17 percent.

This edition includes information on Eastern philosophies; more on alternative certification, gangs, school violence, and bullying; evaluation of student achievement and charter schools in the context of lack of funding; past, current, and prospective laws; a focus on diverse populations and equity and access for special education, women, and minorities; discussion of the effect of political conflict on education and the pros and cons of the reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act; and graphs, photos, and expanded timelines.
