The Advocacy Committee of NCACTE has drafted seven priorities to guide our work as we advocate for Teacher Education in North Carolina:
1. Ensure that Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) in North Carolina are included in the
review and development of policies and legislation relative to educator preparation,
safeguarding that the voices of independent colleges and state universities are equally
considered in policy-making.
School Units (PSUs) in preparing future educators for North Carolina schools
3. Hold all North Carolina educator preparation pathways to high standards, program
reviews/accreditation standards, and transparency expectations.
4. Require all candidates who complete these programs and pathways to meet equally high
5. Create accountability systems for North Carolina EPPs that provide actionable and
reasonable metrics to support continuous improvement of preparation programs.
These priorities were presented to the membership at the 2019 Fall Forum NCACTE
Conference. The priorities will be reviewed annually by the Advocacy Committee and presented
to the membership at the annual conference.
