School of Education Recognized for National Excellence in Educator Preparation

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation announced that Howard University’s School of Education is one of 43 providers from 22 states and the District of Columbia to receive accreditation for its educator preparation programs. The School of Education has been granted accreditation for seven years with no areas for improvement. The Fall 2017 review by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation’s accrediting body increased to 101 for the total number of providers approved under the new Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation teacher preparation standards. These rigorous, nationally recognized standards were developed to ensure excellence in educator preparation programs.

The School of Education specifically champions the needs of Black and other underrepresented students in urban communities. Asset-focused teaching methodologies and interdisciplinary coursework prepare candidates to think and reflect critically, analyze and solve problems, make ethical decisions, translate theory and research into effective practice, and understand self, history and community.
