The Texas State University teacher education program is nationally accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).
TEAC requires members to adhere to rigorous quality standards and provide evidence of meeting those standards. The program makes the following three claims:
Claim I: Graduates demonstrate understanding of the subject matter they teach.
Claim II: Graduates demonstrate proficiency in pedagogy to meet diverse learners’ needs.
Claim III: Graduates demonstrate caring, professionalism, and effective teaching skills.
Since Texas State’s accreditation, TEAC has merged with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) to form a new accrediting body, the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Visit www.caepnet.org for more information.
Texas State University Teacher Education Program, which is designed to prepare candidates for initial teacher certification, is granted Initial accreditation by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) for a period of five years, from 2012-2017. This accreditation certifies that the forenamed professional education program has provided evidence that the program adheres to TEAC’s quality principles.
