American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, http://aacte.org/, December 2014
Over the next several months AACTE’s leadership will conduct interviews with media and engage in strategic outreach to key press to spread the reach of the organization and its members’ stance on the regulations.
For additional information on the teacher preparation regulations, click here to watch AACTE’s recent webinars hosted by Deborah Koolbeck, Director of Government Relations and Jane West, Policy Advisor.
On December 3, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education released its long-anticipated proposed regulations for teacher preparation programs for public comment through the Federal Register. Right now, AACTE staff members are reading and analyzing the regulations. We will post resources from that analysis on our web site as soon as they are developed.
While AACTE staff review the regulations, we encourage you to review them as well and reflect on what implications they may have on your institution and programs. The comment period closes February 2.
AACTE will continue to offer members ongoing support in developing their responses and comments to the regulations. Please check back often for updates.
