A Great Education Begins with Great Teachers

Teachers for a New Era is an initiative designed to improve teacher quality by reforming outstanding teacher preparation programs. Teachers for a New Era is organized by three design principles. First, programs will emphasize to preservice teachers the importance of demonstrating student achievement through evidence. Second, the initiative will fully integrate faculty from the liberal arts and sciences, enriching future teachers' general and subject matter knowledge. Lastly, support will be extended to beginning teachers from their individual colleges and universities.
