Teacher Education Programs

From Education Week:

Although there has been much discussion about improving teacher preparation through a variety of methods, there has been less focus on the role that states play in auditing existing teacher education preparation providers. Education Week reviewed decisions states had made about closing teacher preparation programs in 2009-10 and 2013-14 and compared these decisions to states’ teacher preparation standards. The report argues that the insularity of states’ review processes allows for little public scrutiny that might impel states to close programs that fail to meet standards.
