IACTE Updates - March 22 Meeting Added

IACTE Colleagues –

Attached are the notes from our very informative meeting on January 25th.  Please note that additional resources provided by Carlotta Cooprider can be found on our IACTE Website.

We have added a meeting to our schedule for March 22nd at the University of Indianapolis.  One discussion item will be the various reports that have come out recently on how to improve teacher education; reports include the NCATE/CAEP Blue Report, and those from the Obama Administration, the Council of Chief State School Officers, and the American Federation of Teachers.  We realize that March is “spring break” month, but we felt that our next meeting associated with the Outstanding Future Educators banquet on April 12th was too far away.  With the long legislative session, there simply is a lot do discuss.

So mark your calendars for March 22nd, more information will be forthcoming.
