NYC Analyzes New Teacher Hires from 12 Colleges: All Producing Good Candidates

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's Department of Education has started grading the colleges and universities that train the largest share of its new teachers.

The department issued a report Wednesday analyzing new hires from 12 teacher-education programs. They include those at Columbia University, New York University, St. John's University and several City University of New York campuses.

Each of the schools has had at least 150 graduates hired as New York City teachers since 2008.

Subjects in the report include whether programs are training candidates for high-demand jobs like special education.

It also compares the job performance ratings of graduates of each of the schools.

There are differences among the programs. But Deputy Schools Chancellor David Weiner says all of them are producing high-quality candidates.
