TECSCU Characteristics. A Report Based on the 2002 Professional Education Data System of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) is the sole national organization that represents the institutional interests of university-based teacher education programs. Specifically, AACTE represents more than 770 schools, colleges, and departments of education and affiliate organizations that produce more than two thirds of the nation?s new school personnel each year. One of the Association?s primary goals is to contribute to the knowledge base on teacher education by conducting surveys on topics of critical interest, publishing scholarly papers, and collecting information that assists users in the study of education policy, especially as it relates to the quality preparation of educators. In addition, AACTE and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) cosponsor the Professional Education Data System (PEDS), which annually collects and examines data on the productivity, demographics, and financial resources of AACTE and NCATE member institutions. This report provides selected data for TECSCU member institutions from the 2002 PEDS report, which collected data on the 2000-2001 academic year. Of the 662 AACTE members who completed the survey, 176 institutions (26.6%) indicated that they were affiliated with TECSCU. Data used for this report is based on these 176 institutions and is organized into four subsections: (a) Professional Educational Faculty; (b) Enrollment; (c) Degrees Conferred, and (d) Technology and Distance Education.
