Teacher Preparation Commission
How can state policy improve the preparation of teachers?
The SREB Teacher Preparation Commission met during 2016, 2017 and 2018 to consider effective ways to better prepare teachers to help students reach high academic standards. Its charge was to develop practical and effective statewide recommendations to improve teacher preparation programs.
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards chaired the Commission, whose members included state legislators, educators, university presidents and deans, and other policymakers and experts.
