In October 1998, Congress voiced its
concern for the quality of teacher preparation by
enacting Title II of the Higher Education Act (HEA).
Title II authorizes new federal grant programs that
support the efforts of states, institutions of higher
education, and their school district partners to
improve the recruitment, preparation, and support
teachers. Title II also includes new accountability
measures in the form of reporting requirements for
institutions and states on teacher preparation and
licensing. To learn more visit http://www.title2.org.
