WASHINGTON — The national group that represents teacher education colleges on Wednesday released data that it says show such programs have become more competitive to get into and more clinically oriented.

“The good news is that we are taking selectivity very seriously,” said Sharon P. Robinson, president of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, at a press briefing here, “and the programs are moving to incorporate indicated reforms and innovation regarding their own instruction.”
