The Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) was founded in 1989. Over the past 23 years more than 500 MTC participants have taught in critical-needs schools in Mississippi. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of Mississippi Teacher Corps teachers as compared to non-Mississippi Teacher Corps teachers.
The method of research was a quantitative analysis of standardized test scores from the "Rural County School District" for school year 2009–2010. The analysis showed that there is no significant difference in mean test scores of students who are taught by MTC teachers as compared to non-MTC teachers but that, in both the fall and spring, student test scores are significantly higher in MTC classrooms.
