Note: This site is primarily for Teacher Quality Enhancement Program grantees funded prior to 2009. The Higher Education Opportunity Act made substantial changes to the Teacher Quality Program. The new TQ Program is administered by the Office of Innovation and Improvement. The new program Web site may be found at: www.ed.gov/programs/tqpartnership/.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (Public Law 110-315) (HEOA) was enacted on August 14, 2008. This law reauthorizes and extends the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The Higher Education Act (HEA) provides the statutory authority for most of the programs administered by OPE, as well as for the Federal Student Aid Programs.
- Current Teacher Quality statute as amended by the HEOA: 20 USC, 1022-1022h
