The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has released its first review of teacher education programs.
St. Louis Public Radio’s Camille Phillips says the state review found that most colleges are doing a good job preparing Missouri educators.
The vast majority of Missouri educator programs meet the state’s expectations.
That’s based on the success of the about 15,000 teachers and principals certified in Missouri over the past five years. Success was measured by GPA, surveys and passing certification tests within two attempts.
