(Jan. 17, 2012, Washington, D.C.) – Tomorrow, the U.S. Department of Education’s Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on Teacher Preparation Programs will begin its work to develop regulations for Title II of the Higher Education Act (HEA) and the TEACH Grants. The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) today commended the deans and other teacher preparation leaders serving as members of the panel for their commitment to this endeavor and offered some guiding principles for the Committee’s deliberations over the next few months. These guiding principles focus on enhancing the preparation of future educators in meaningful, sustainable and achievable ways, and seek to ensure advancement of the entire educator preparation profession to improve the knowledge and skills of beginning teachers entering the nation’s classrooms.
