The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is introducing a new approach to accrediting teacher education programs and has identified the CommPACT Schools initiative as a national model for the new system.
This morning, Richard Schwab, dean of the Neag School of Education at UConn, spoke at a press conference at the National Press Club announcing NCATE’s new accreditation program. The Neag School is a CommPACT partner along with CEA, American Federation of Teachers – CT, CT Association of Public School Superintendents, CT Association of Urban Superintendents, and CT Federation of School Administrators.
“The CommPACT Schools initiative serves as a real-world laboratory for helping us prepare well-grounded educators who understand the causes of the achievement gap and the solutions for eliminating it,” said Schwab. Read about NEA President Van Roekel’s recent visit to Bridgeport CommPACT Schools.
