Accreditation of Teacher Education

Excellent teaching can only be delivered by excellent teachers—professionals who are ready to meet the challenges of today's classrooms and to help all children succeed. That's why ILA strongly advocates for outstanding teacher education and actively participates in organizations dedicated to ensuring high-quality educator preparation.

To support accreditation of outstanding teacher preparation programs, ILA is a specialty professional association (SPA) of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the consolidation of the former National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the former Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).
