A Report on Outcomes of Teacher Education Grants
New Jersey Commission on Higher Education
In January 2000, the Commission on Higher Education initiated discussions regarding the critical role of colleges and universities in preparing and sustaining effective preschool-to-grade-twelve teachers, and those discussions subsequently resulted in four different Commission programs focused on teacher quality. New Jersey's long-range plan for higher education, "A Blueprint for Excellence," recognizes the continuing need to address issues related to teacher quality and calls for the Commission to review and assess the outcomes to date of its 2001, 2002, and 2003 teacher education grant programs to inform future policy and planning. An assessment of the outcomes of the four grant programs through spring 2004 was initiated in March of this year, and the findings are presented in this document. The following sections are included: (1) Introduction; (2) Background; (3) Overview of Grant Programs; (4) Assessment Process; (5) Findings; and (6) Conclusions and Recommendations.
