Teacher-education programs fall short

A groundbreaking new report conducted by the National Council on Teacher Quality and published by U.S. News & World Report has delivered a scathing review of the majority of our nation’s teacher-education programs. It gives just four college programs top marks and places 160 on a "consumer alert" list.

"You just have to have a pulse and you can get into some of these education schools," said Mike Petrilli to the Associated Press. "If policymakers took this report seriously, they'd be shutting down hundreds of programs."
