The University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s School of Education recently received accreditation for a period of six years, from 2015-21 under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards. NCATE’s performance-based accreditation system for teacher preparation ensures that teacher candidates are prepared to make a difference in P-12 student learning.
The Commission also made a distinct decision to recognize that the School is moving toward target on Standard 2 cited no areas for improvement relative to any of the standards.
