The importance of state-level advocacy cannot be emphasized enough – particularly as implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the federal teacher preparation program regulations unfolds throughout the country. As legislation and regulations surrounding teacher licensure, certification, accreditation, clinical practice, performance assessment, program approval, teacher shortages, and more emerge at the state level, AACTE is working hard to ensure members are equipped with the tools and resources necessary to bring educator preparation’s voice to the table for these important deliberations.
The resources made available here and elsewhere on AACTE’s website will help members and state chapters enhance their advocacy capacity through developing foundational and ongoing support for their efforts.
