The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) recently announced that Delta State University’s Elementary Education Program in the Division of Teacher Education, Leadership, and Research is one of only 15 undergraduate elementary programs out of more than 1,000 graded nationwide to earn an A+ in reading instruction for teacher candidates.  Findings appear in NCTQ’s “2020 Teacher Prep Review: Program Performance in Early Reading Instruction.” For the first time since NCTQ began publishing ratings in 2013, 51% of traditional elementary teacher preparation programs evaluated in the science of reading received an A or B, up from 35% seven years ago.  Congratulations to Delta State’s Elementary Education Program!
