Easy A’s: Report finds teachers aren’t prepared for the classroom

Easy A’s: A new report finds that teachers are often ill-prepared for the classroom due to ‘easy A’s’ in college.

Teachers don’t leave college adequately prepared for the classroom, a new report finds.

Researchers at the National Council on Teacher Quality have found students studying to become teachers are much more likely to graduate with honors than students in other majors.

Is this because prospective teachers are smarter than their colleagues, or is it because their course work is easier?

NCTQ answers this question in their new report: “Easy A’s And What’s Behind Them.”

One of the researchers, Kate Walsh of the NCTQ, explains just how widespread this practice is, and what can be done to fix it.
