Rulemaking could affect teacher colleges

From: Education Daily
The future of teacher preparation colleges could be a focus of new Education Department regulations. In a Federal Register notice published August 18, ED announced plans to form negotiated rulemaking committees to create rules for Higher Education Act programs, including Teacher Quality Enhancement Grants. Jade Floyd, communications manager for the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education , said that the organization would be closely watching the rulemaking. It would be serious for a college of education not to be able to enroll financial aid recipients, she said. “Their productivity, the number of graduates is going to drop” until they meet state criteria, she added.
