Nationally certified teachers do not necessarily produce greater student success in the classroom, a study of more than 300 middle-school teachers in North Carolina concludes.

Funded by a grant from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards—the organization that evaluates teachers for national certification—the study was conducted by two professors of education at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va.

It found that students of board-certified teachers performed slightly better than the students of non-board-certified teachers, but that the differences were minor. Researchers examined three school districts in North Carolina and also conducted in-class evaluations for both board-certified and other teachers.
