Higher Education Act (1998)

The Higher Education Act (U.S. Department of Education) addresses accountability requirements for teacher preparation programs. The Act mandates that teacher preparation programs publish annually pertinent program information including but not limited to the following: (a) program accreditation; (b) pass rates of graduates on state teacher certification assessments; and (c) programs that have been designated as low performing by the State. In accordance with this act, information about the state- and NCATE-accredited teacher preparation programs at UF can be accessed at the College of Education Web site (www.coe.ufl.edu). A printed copy of this information can be provided upon request.
