UNC Pembroke teacher prep program earns top marks
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke’s undergraduate elementary teacher preparation program has been named among the top in the country by the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ), a nonpartisan, not-for-profit research and policy organization, for strong training in classroom management strategies.
This month, NCTQ released its 2020 Teacher Prep Review: Clinical Practice and Classroom Management, which finds encouraging progress in teacher preparation programs’ adoption of evidence-based classroom management strategies that are universally effective, regardless of student age or the subject being taught.
UNCP’s undergraduate program is among only 14% of elementary programs to earn an A and serves as a model of excellence for others. UNCP is among only 138 out of 979 programs nationwide to receive an A on classroom management.
