Ask Congress to Rescind the Teacher Preparation Regulations!
Your constituent voice has been heard!
The resolution to rescind the teacher preparation program regulations has been passed by Congress and awaits the president's signature!
Stay tuned for updates and thank you for your advocacy!
On October 12, 2016, the U.S. Department of Education released its revised regulations for teacher preparation programs on its website (see AACTE press statement). The final rule was officially published in the Federal Register October 31.
What Can You Do?
Congress has the power to rescind the teacher preparation program regulations through the Congressional Review Act, which would require the entire process to be completed in May or June. In order for this to happen, members of Congress need to hear from their constituents – YOU – to know that you want them to rescind the regulations.
