Kentucky To Join Pilot Program Aimed At Preparing New Teachers
Kentucky will be one of seven states to take part in a two-year pilot program to train future teachers.
Gov. Steve Beshear announced Kentucky’s inclusion in the newly-formed Network for Transforming Educator Preparation, or NTEP, Wednesday. The program aims to better equip new teachers before they face the classroom.
Over the next two years, NTEP states will work with educators, training programs, colleges and universities, and school districts to improve the way they prepare teachers.
Kentucky, along with six other states, will be joined by 17 national organizations committed to support the states’ efforts to accelerate change in educator preparation and entry into the profession. The policies that emerge may also influence training for school administrators, including principals.
