ATE Supports KDP Letter on Teacher Recruitment: The Association of Teacher Educators joined other groups in supporting a letter on teacher recruitment developed by Kappa Delta Pi. Click here to see the "Joint Statement on Recruiting Quality Candidates Into the Teaching Profession" and a list of groups supporting this statement.
ATE Joined a Broad Coalition of higher education, PK-12, and state-level organizations in releasing a statement citing concerns about the final teacher preparation program regulations released last week by the U.S. Department of Education. Nearly 30 organizations signed on to the statement. Among these organizations’ concerns about the new rule are that it will decrease the likelihood of every student having access to a fully prepared teacher, disadvantage programs serving the communities that most need well-prepared teachers, and impede progress toward increasing the diversity of the teaching profession. The full statement and list of signing organizations is here.
