Report and Recommendation of the NCATE/TEAC Design Team to Our Respective Boards of Directors
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NJ1)
When the idea of combining NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) and TEAC (Teacher Education Accreditation Council) was first conceived, its initial objectives were enabling the profession to speak with a single voice about the preparation of teachers, administrators and other P-12 professional educators (P-12 educators) and eliminating unnecessary costs caused by the overlapping activities of two accreditors for the same field. This paper recommends that the Executive Board of NCATE and the Board of Directors of TEAC adopt a motion authorizing their Presidents to execute, on behalf of their respective organizations, agreements substantially in the form of Attachment A, which would provide for (1) the creation of The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, Inc., (CAEP), (2) a transition period of no more than two years to complete the design work and implement its capacity to accredit all institutions and other entities that prepare teachers, administrators and other P-12 professional educators and (3) immediately afterwards, the consolidation of NCATE and TEAC into CAEP as the field's accreditor.
