Teacher Education Accreditation Council
The Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), founded in 1997, is dedicated to improving academic degree and certificate programs for professional educators--those who teach and lead in schools, pre-K through grade 12, and to assuring the public of their quality. TEAC accredits undergraduate and graduate programs, including alternate route programs, based on (1) the evidence they have that they prepare competent, caring, and qualified professional educators and (2) their capacity to monitor and improve the program's quality. TEAC believes this is the soundest way to assure the public about the quality of college and university programs. This "Guide to Accreditation" is primarily for the faculty, staff, and administrators of the TEAC member programs. It is designed for use in preparing for both initial and continuing accreditation. Appended are: (1) List of Tables and Figures; and (2) TEAC Glossary. An index and TEAC's accreditation framework are also included. Individual sections contain tables, figures, footnotes, and appendices.
