Teacher Preparation Issues

AGENCY: Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.


SUMMARY: The Secretary proposes new regulations to implement 
requirements for the teacher preparation program accountability system 
under title II of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), 
that would result in the development and distribution of more 
meaningful data on teacher preparation program quality (title II 
reporting system). The Secretary also proposes to amend the regulations 
governing the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher 
Education (TEACH) Grant Program under title IV of the HEA so as to 
condition TEACH Grant program funding on teacher preparation program 
quality and to update, clarify, and improve the current regulations and 
align them with title II reporting system data.
