Teacher Preparation Commission
How can state policy improve the preparation of teachers, using licensure and certification, approval of teacher prep programs, and accountability as levers?
The SREB Teacher Preparation Commission will meet during 2016 and 2017 to consider effective ways to better prepare teachers to help students reach higher academic standards. Its charge is to develop practical and effective statewide recommendations to improve teacher preparation programs.
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards chairs the Commission, whose members include state legislators, university presidents and deans, and other policymakers and experts.
