Overview

The National Center for Education Statistics has predicted that some 2.4 million new teachers will be needed by 2008-09 because of teacher attrition and retirement, and increased student enrollment. The projections indicate the importance of offering information to prospective students, and their counselors, who are interested in entering teacher education programs. For this reason, the ACE/Praeger Series on Higher Education, with the participation of the AACTE (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education), has provided the most up-to-date and comprehensive information available on teacher education programs in U.S. colleges and universities. Projections by the National Center for Education Statistics, indicating a large and growing need for new teachers later in this decade, make it clear that offering information to prospective teacher education students, and their counselors, is a very important service to the field of education. ACE, with the participation of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, has produced the most comprehensive directory in this area. Arranged by state, and then alphabetically by institution, the information is the result of data collected both by questionnaire and by additional research online and from the National Center for Education Statistics, from over 800 teacher education programs across the country. In addition to all of the basic information about the undergraduate programs—including certification, admission requirements, institution and program descriptions, licensure, financial information and financial aid—the directory offers information for those programs that offer graduate degrees in teacher education.
