On Deck Front PageThe 2015 National Teacher Fellows collaborated with the U.S. Department of Education and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education to formulate questions on teacher preparation, and conducted a six-week research project that consisted of virtual and in-person engagement, ultimately gathering the perspectives of nearly 2,000 current classroom teachers regarding their pathways to certification.

The conversation-starting research findings in On Deck: Preparing the Next Generation of Teachers reveal data collected from educators spanning 49 states and a variety of experience levels, especially pertaining to:

~ Curriculum addressing college- and career-ready standards

~ Preparation for serving high-need/persistently low-achieving populations

~ Beneficial experiences for preservice teachers

~ Accountability measures for teacher preparation programs
