Education dean named to accreditation council

Tue, 07/23/2013

LAWRENCE — Rick Ginsberg, dean of the School of Education, has been named to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation board of directors. The organization is dedicated to improving teacher preparation through evidence-based accreditation.

The Council was formed recently when the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education and Teacher Education Accreditation Council agreed to form a single accreditation body in order to provide a singular voice on the topic and promote positive reform. The group's first task will be to review and approve a new set of standards for accrediting institutions of teacher preparation. More than 900 teacher preparation providers will take part in the council's accreditation system.
