A nonprofit advocacy says Texas teacher's colleges generally do a poor job of training prospective teachers.
The Houston Chronicle reported that the national council on teacher quality's report is already drawing scorn from many college deans. For example, Charles Ruch, the interim Dean of the College of Education at Texas Tech, said he is more concerned about meeting state accreditation and voluntary national accreditation standards.
Ruch told the Chronicle, "We meet the state standards and the national standards, and those are pretty rigorous in most cases."
