Important Update on Title II Regulations

Dear AACTE members and state chapter leaders,

Congratulations – your advocacy is about to pay off! Yesterday, the U.S. Senate passed a joint resolution, already approved by the U.S. House, to rescind the teacher preparation program regulations that were issued last year by the U.S. Department of Education despite a strong negative response from the field. Now, once the president signs off, these onerous regulations will be history.

Since the announcement of negotiated rule making back in 2011, we’ve worked together to engage in the regulatory process for teacher preparation programs under Title II of the Higher Education Act. You affected every step of the process, and there were many steps! In just the last few months, your advocacy led seven Democratic senators and one Independent senator to join their Republican colleagues yesterday in voting to get rid of these regulations. This result is evidence of the strong relationships you have cultivated with your elected officials as well as collaborations with PK-12 colleagues and other partners and stakeholders.

These connections will serve us well in future advocacy as a continual part of our work. Meanwhile, we’ll stay busy continuing to improve the preparation of educators to meet the needs of the communities and students we serve.
