Review of the Nation's Teacher Preparation Programs - The NCTQ doesn't rate the vast majority of teacher preparation programs highly. Researchers found less that 10% of rated programs earn three stars or more. Only four earn four stars: Lipscomb and Vanderbilt in Tennessee, Ohio State University, Furman University in South Carolina. Further, it is too easy to get into a teacher preparation program, fewer than one in nine elementary programs and just over a third secondary programs are preparing students to teach the Common Core State Standards.
