Event Details

There are many elements that are crucial to a child's successful education, ranging from parenting to technology to classroom size and more. One element that tops the list of importance is undoubtedly the classroom teacher - and a recent national study has found that not all colleges are adequately preparing individuals for the teaching profession.


On Tuesday, June 18 the Teacher Prep Review was released nationwide stating that teachers are not graduating the nation’s colleges ready to teach. The review attaches consumer alerts to some colleges of education stating the programs provide little-to-no teacher-training value. 

For this education forum, Kate Walsh, president of the National Council on Teacher Quality, will address attendees on the results of the Teacher Prep Review; she will share information about regional teaching programs.
