The National Council on Teacher Education, commonly known as NCTQ, rated Southeastern’s College of Education as among one of the best in the country.
Each year, the NCTQ releases its “Best Value” ratings of colleges of education across the nation. Recently, Southeastern Louisiana University was ranked 15th for value nationwide, an “A” rating, moving up from last year’s score of 28.
In response to the high ratings of Southeastern Louisiana’s College of Education, President John L. Crain remarks: “it is rewarding to see our College of Education faculty be recognized for their excellent work in preparing great teachers.”
When ranking each college of education, the NCTQ takes many aspects into account such as the salary of teaching positions per each state, the tuition of the colleges of education, and how well each college prepares students for success in the profession of teaching.
The NCTQ diligently works to develop ratings of the colleges of education stating “all children deserve effective teachers.” Shirley Jacob, interim dean of the College of Education acknowledges that “Students in the [college of education] program are receiving a high rate of return on their investment in education.”
