Louisiana Department of Education's Teacher Preparation Report

We are excited to be able to share with you the Louisiana Department of Education’s  (LDOE) report Partners in Preparation: A Survey of Educators and Education Preparation Programs, highlighting some of the current challenges in teacher preparation and licensure in our state and previewing our plan to work with districts and preparation programs to improve the preparation experience for future teacher candidates.

This report is the result of a survey conducted this summer by the LDOE in which we polled new teachers, preparation program faculty, and school and district leaders to better understand how educator preparation supports our state’s shift to higher standards and aligns with school and district needs. The results of this survey are showcased in our report and will guide our plan to work with educators to create a roadmap for strengthening educator preparation so that new teachers will be fully prepared for Louisiana’s classrooms on day one.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the report, survey results, or our future plans to engage stakeholders in this work by emailing believeandprepare@la.gov, as we would greatly value your feedback.
