CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A study of teacher preparation programs at colleges around the country gives low marks to Wyoming.

The study by the National Council on Teacher Quality says Wyoming was among the 17 states that did not have a “top-ranked program.”

The report says a low score for a program does not mean its graduates don’t become good teachers. Rather, it points out that programs could offer them better support.

Leslie Rush is associate dean of the University of Wyoming’s teacher education office.

She says all teacher education programs will be examined starting this fall with the goal of making sure all students are fully prepared for classrooms.
