Teacher Training’s Low Grade

“The National Council on Teacher Quality has long promoted over-hauling U.S. teacher preparation” says a recent article in the WSJ.  Here is their recent study: http://coe.unm.edu/research/usnwr-nctq.html

Following up on my previous musing on the Common Core’s lack of professional development being a prime cause of poor student performance, the Council’s report said that “fewer than one in nine programs for future elementary reachers, and just over one-third of high school programs, properly prepare teachers to teach the Common Core Standards and about 75% aren’t preparing graduates to teach reading to youngsters.  Let there be no confusion or surprise about why children and teachers are not poised for success with this dismal piece of information.
