Teacher-Prep Accrediting Groups to Merge

From Education Week

Under the terms of the agreement, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the much smaller Teacher Education Accreditation Council, both based in Washington, would initially continue to operate their activities separately as they flesh out a new body, incorporated last week, to serve as the sole accreditor for the field.
