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.

                                 Statement on NCTQ

          2. Establish and sustain mutually beneficial and collaborative relationships with Public

              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. 

                              Statement on Current  Proposed EPP Sanction Models

                            Statement on Future EPP Sanction Comparison Models

        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.
