KSSPE Faculty Member Participates in UUP Roundtable for Issues in Higher Education
Dr. Houston-Wilson, Co-Chair of the UUP Committee on Teacher Education in Higher Education, provided testimony related to access issues for teacher educators as it relates to admittance into graduate school.
NYS has implemented additional hurdles for teacher educators who have already met standards set forth through accreditation and who are already initially certified to begin their teaching careers. These hurdles do nothing more than limit access to graduate programs in NYS and force otherwise qualified students to pursue their required graduate studies outside of NYS. A link to the entire roundtable is provided below.
