The purpose of the TQE-R grants program is to afford an opportunity for states and partnerships receiving grants to address the challenge of America 's teacher shortage by making significant and lasting systemic changes in the way teachers are recruited, prepared, and supported to teach in high-need schools. The Department of Education's goal is to ensure that these changes lead to important improvements to the supply of well-trained and highly-qualified teachers.
