WHO: National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ), a non-partisan research and policy organization dedicated to ensuring every classroom has a high quality teacher.

What: NCTQ’s Teacher Prep Review coming out on December 8th which will rate undergraduate programs that prepare elementary school teachers, is a follow up to the June 2014 report that found that although a movement to tackle the quality of teacher preparation has gained momentum, undergraduate programs still have a long way to go in preparing our nation’s elementary teachers.

Over the next year NCTQ will detail the landscape of U.S. teacher preparation by releasing program rankings of undergraduate elementary (December 2016), undergraduate secondary (Spring 2017), graduate and nontraditional elementary (Fall 2017), and graduate and nontraditional secondary (Spring 2018).

When: RELEASE DATE of Thursday, December 8th, 2016 at 12:01am/ET.
