AACTE Statement on CCSSO Transforming Educator Preparation Report Print E-mail

The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) today issued a new report entitled, Our Responsibility, Our Promise: CCSSO Task Force Report on Transforming Educator Preparation and Entry into the Profession. This report outlines recommendations for state school chiefs to engage in the transformation of how teachers and principals are prepared. AACTE is pleased to see its priorities for change in educator preparation reflected in the report.

"This report signals that state school chiefs recognize the important role that educator preparation plays in ensuring that all students are college- and career-ready," said Sharon P. Robinson, Ed.D., president and CEO of AACTE. "AACTE found that several of the recommendations, such as those on developing a performance assessment and improving high quality clinical experiences and state data systems, follow our members' professional and advocacy priorities. From here, it will be key that the implementation of these recommendations is taken seriously and accomplished by bringing all stakeholders to the table. To that end, we were pleased to see institutions of higher education represented on the report's advisory group. We pledge to work with CCSSO, and with the pilot states through our state chapters, to support implementation of these important recommendations."
