This Title III funded Activity ensures the maintenance of Teacher Education Programs and the College of Education by both the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Louisiana State Board of Education. The College of Education and Human Development at Southern University at New Orleans has developed a comprehensive teacher certification program to address the teacher shortage in Louisiana. This Activity provides the framework for the preparation and certification of teachers, and provides teachers opportunities for professional development and growth, and serves as a catalyst for the rapidly changing reform developments in the teacher’s preparation curriculum. Programs include Certification and Teacher Quality programs, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate-Only programs, Test Preparation Workshops, and Professional Development programs for teachers. The center is comprehensive in that it prepares individuals who do not have education degrees to become certified to teach in early childhood, K-12, and secondary areas such as biology, English, mathematics, and social studies.
