NAS's Sandra Stotsky at Teacher Education Panel

Ashley Thorne

NAS board member and Arkansas affiliate president Sandra Stotsky spoke on Friday at a panel convened by Bruce Cole, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Indiana Public Media covered the event:

Panel member Sandra Stotsky, an education researcher at the University of Arkansas, says a teacher’s knowledge in the subject they are teaching is one of the most significant factors in teacher and, therefore, student success. And she says ensuring that knowledge begins with toughening admission standards at schools of education.

“We no longer can count on strong high school preparation, which is what other countries rely on for those they admit to a teacher preparation program,” Stotsky says.
