2014 State Teacher Policy Yearbook: Are New Teachers Being Prepared for College- and Career-Readiness Standards? National Summary
National Council on Teacher Quality
Since most states adopted college- and career-readiness standards, about one million new teachers have graduated from teacher preparation programs in the United States. With five years lead time on incorporating new standards into policy and practice, this year the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has expanded its policy analysis to examine the extent to which states have aligned their requirements for teacher preparation and licensure with the skills needed to prepare students for college and careers. The 2014 State Teacher Policy Yearbook focuses on state efforts to deliver well-prepared teachers into the profession by: (1) Establishing high standards for admission into teacher preparation programs; (2) Ensuring that teacher candidates have rigorous content knowledge of the subjects they will teach; and (3) Explicitly requiring teacher preparation programs to address the instructional shifts required by college and career-readiness standards, and holding teacher preparation institutions accountable for the quality of teachers they produce.
