NCTQ Teacher Prep Review
Executive Summary
Once the world leader in educational attainment, the United States has slipped well into the middle o the pack. Countriesthat were considered little more than educational backwaters just a ew years ago have leapt to the oreront o studentachievement.There’s no shortage o actors or America’s educational decline: budget cutbacks, entrenched poverty, crowdedclassrooms, shorter school years, greater diversity o students than in other countries. The list seems endless.NCTQ’s
Teacher Prep Review 
has uncovered another cause, one that ew would suspect: the colleges and universitiesproducing America’s traditionally prepared teachers.Through an exhaustive and unprecedented examination o how these schools operate, the
nds they havebecome an industry o mediocrity, churning out rst-year teachers with classroom management skills and contentknowledge inadequate to thrive in classrooms with ever-increasing ethnic and socioeconomic student diversity.We were able to determine overall ratings based on a set o key standards or 608 institutions. Those ratings can beound on the
U.S. News & World Report 
website, www.usnews.com, as well as our own, www.nctq.org, where thereis additional data on another 522 institutions. Altogether, the
provides data on the 1,130 institutions thatprepare 99 percent o the nation’s traditionally trained new teachers. No small eat.As the product o eight years o development and 10 pilot studies, the standards applied here are derived romstrong research, the practices o high-perorming nations and states, consensus views o experts, the demandso the Common Core State Standards (and other standards or college and career readiness) and occasionally justcommon sense.We strived to apply the standards uniormly to all the nation’s teacher preparation programs as part o our eort tobring as much transparency as possible to the way America’s teachers are prepared. In collecting inormation or thisinitial report, however, we encountered enormous resistance rom leaders o many o the programs we sought toassess. In some cases, we sued or the public inormation they reused to provide. We anticipate greater cooperationor uture editions o the
, which will be published annually, resulting in more ratings or more programs.
