Panel: Proposed Federal Regulations Could Have Negative Impact on Teacher Diversity
On Tuesday, January 27, the American Federation of Teachers and Howard University (DC) convened a panel at the National Press Club to discuss the potential impact of the proposed federal teacher preparation regulations on minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and their teacher pipelines. AACTE President/CEO Sharon P. Robinson was among the panelists who shared their concerns and urged the U.S. Department of Education to withdraw the regulations.
Panelists also discussed other concerns about the proposed regulations, including their overreach of federal authority, impact on student financial aid, and the unfunded mandates they would impose on states and institutions. View the full recorded event below.
Don’t forget: February 2 is the deadline to submit a comment on the regulations! Once you have filed your own comment, please continue to encourage your higher education and PK-12 colleagues do the same.
