Spanish term or phrase:perdió su sentido de elevación
Si bien este ingreso se mantuvo . . . , la carrera magisterial perdió su sentido de elevación de la calidad académica del maestro.
From the larger context (and my apologies to everyone for not posting more text), I know this is the right answer. I'm using "lost its purpose of raising the quality of teaching" thanks!! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: or words to that effect! You can jiggle around with the position of "high" (high status; high quality - but preferably not both!)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Carol: I ought to give you the points, but I need to explain something (my apologies for not posting more text!). Elevación means to raise the quality of the teaching, but it isn't referring to the high quality of the program. Thanks for your help anyway!
