The Secretary's Seventh Annual Report on Teacher Quality: A Highly Qualified Teacher in Every Classroom
Office of Postsecondary Education, US Department of Education
This seventh report on the quality of America's teacher preparation programs and novice teachers presents data reported to the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) in October 2007 by all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the outlying areas, which include American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau and the Virgin Islands. Section 207 of Title II of the "Higher Education Act" (HEA), as amended in 1998, required states to report on teacher preparation and licensing. Since 2001, the Department has used a web-based state reporting system to collect data on teacher preparation programs and prospective teachers, as well as states' assessment and licensing of teacher candidates. State certification requirements and policy-related information were also collected. While this report focuses on national and summary data, the individual state reports contain additional information (such as data for individual teacher preparation programs). The report is intended to inform aspiring teachers, the education community, institutions of higher education, Congress, researchers and policymakers about the quality of teacher preparation in America. (Contains 19 tables, 18 figures and 13 footnotes.)
