UNC’s Education Innovation Institute is working with the University of Colorado and the Department of Higher Education to help establish a database in which educator preparation programs can be validly linked to the K-12 educators they send out into the field.
SB 10-036 and SB 11-245 are two bills that require educator preparation programs to be assessed in part on the basis of the academic success of students taught in K-12 classrooms by graduates of each teacher prep program. This luncheon forum will provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about these statutes and ask questions about their impact on UNC.
