Austin Peay State University College of Education still shines after 60 years of National Accreditation

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Earlier this academic year, Austin Peay State University’s Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education was reaccredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards, ensuring that APSU’s teacher candidates will be fully prepared to enter classrooms across the United States.

“For a school like Austin Peay, national accreditation is really important because our students go all over the country,” Dr. Carlette Hardin, dean of the Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education, said. “When they go to another state, it’s important that their state licensure board knows that our students came from a nationally accredited program.”

APSU Education Professors and Graduate Students help Teachers in Guatemala

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In Guatemala, it’s easy for a public school teacher to feel overwhelmed. Class sizes are large, with about 45 to 50 students squeezing into a small, hot classroom. And most teachers in that country begin their careers at the age of 17 or 18, with minimal preparation.

“The resources are limited there,” Dr. Barbara Peterson, Austin Peay State University associate professor of education, said. “The schools are very poorly funded.”
