The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has recognized Louisiana Tech University’s undergraduate elementary teacher preparation program as one of the nation’s top programs, exceling in preparing teacher candidates to be highly effective teachers. The accolade is highlighted as an element of NCTQ’s newest book, Start Here to Become a Teacher, which was released recently.“Of course, I am very pleased that our program was recognized by NCTQ as one of the top 120 programs—out of 872,” said Dr. Don Schillinger, Dean of the College of Education. “While our faculty and students are dedicated to integrating multiple standards-based and data-driven components into their professional development, we appreciate many of NCTQ’s selection criteria. I’m proud of our program’s positive impact, as recognized by NCTQ, on future teachers and the students they will serve.” This is not the first time this program has been honored by the NCTQ. In 2016, NCTQ listed Tech’s undergraduate elementary teacher preparation program as No. 4 nationally.
