AACTE is committed to meeting members' needs and serving as a national voice and resource on behalf of the educator preparation profession. At the request of our members, we have compiled a set of resources on the annual U.S. News & World Report/National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) review of education schools. These resources serve to bring more transparency to the full story behind the review process, institutions' history with NCTQ, and the collective concerns of the AACTE membership.

In numerous member surveys over the last few years, AACTE has found that nearly 90% of member institutions do not feel that U.S. News and NCTQ are appropriate and objective arbiters for such a wide-scale review of educator preparation program quality. Based on AACTE's interactions with NCTQ at the national level and our members' repeated experiences with the group over the years, we believe it is our responsibility to inform the public about the facts, experiences, and perspectives of our membership.
