Raising pay for teachers, offering more early childhood education and increasing spending on poor school districts are among the recommendations from a national commission Tuesday on improving student achievement.

The full report is available below.

The Equity and Excellence commission, which was created by Congress, spent two years reviewing the state of the American education system.

Its five major recommendations are: improving the way schools are funded; recruiting talented teachers to the profession; expanding early childhood education; meeting the needs of students in high-poverty communities; and improving accountability of educators.
