MTA Ed Prep Public Comment

Check out the MTA public comments on educator preparation programs.

The Massachusetts Teachers Association submitted public comment on the draft Pre-Practicum Policy proposals

The MTA supports robust requirements for all those who seek to enter the profession. Included in the full set of public comments, the MTA recommends that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education set a minimum standard for all educators to have diverse experiences. Pre-service educators should have experiences observing, engaging and practicing in classrooms that cover a wide range of student ages, grade levels, student learning characteristics (e.g. special education, English learner, high needs), community socio-economic status and school accountability level.
