Teacher Preparation Program Reports

The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) has created the nation’s first ever district-level Teacher Preparation Program Reports, which analyze the quality, distribution, and retention of new teacher hires graduating from college and university education programs. The first in-depth information of its kind, the data reflect the performance of new teachers from 2008-2012 from the 12 education programs that supplied the most educators to the NYCDOE system over that time. The Department compiled these reports as a first step for the City and university education programs to open a dialogue aimed at developing a long-term strategy to improve preparation for aspiring teachers before they ever step into a NYCDOE classroom.

Click on each school’s report below to look at six measures of teacher performance, retention, and supply of new teacher hires:

Adelphi University Brooklyn College (CUNY) City College (CUNY)
Hofstra University Hunter College (CUNY) Lehman College (CUNY)
Mercy College New York University Queens College (CUNY)
St. John’s University Teachers College (Columbia University) Touro College
