(September 30, 2011, Washington, D.C.) – The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) is pleased to have the U.S. Department of Education join us in our efforts to reform educator preparation and strengthen accountability measures through its blueprint, “Our Future, Our Teachers.” We have long held the position that preparation programs should be held accountable for the skill of their graduates, and that low-performing programs that consistently fail to deliver should be closed.
