Teacher Preparation Commission
How can state policy improve the preparation of teachers?
The SREB Teacher Preparation Commission met during 2016, 2017 and 2018 to develop practical and effective statewide recommendations to improve teacher preparation programs.
“A great teacher can change the trajectory of a student’s life, which is why every student deserves an excellent educator,” said Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, who chaired the Commission. “Given its importance, teaching should require a firm grounding in initial preparation, close mentoring in the early years, and continued professional learning.”
