Chen, Irene; Paige, Susan; Bhattacharjee, Maria
Teacher Education and Practice, v17 n2 p211-229 Spr 2004
The faculty in the Department of Urban Education (DUE) at the University of Houston Downtown (UHD) have developed critical awareness of issues related to the responsibility of both teachers and teacher educators for addressing the mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The purpose of this article is to provide relevant information on what has been the impact, thus far, of the NCLB Act on the UHD teacher education program, including the application for state NCLB accreditation, the creation of a brand new alternative certification program (ACP), the provision for assistance to an urban charter school, the reorganization of deficiency plan program, and the inclusion of a new master of arts in teaching (MAT) cohort group in cooperation with an area school district.
