About TEAC Goals & Principles

Goal: Offer public assurance that educators are competent, caring, and qualified.

The common purpose of teacher education programs and other programs for professionals who work in schools is to prepare competent, caring, and qualified educators. The faculty members seeking TEAC accreditation of their program are required to affirm this straightforward goal as the goal of their program.

The TEAC quality principles are the means by which the faculty makes the case that its professional education program has succeeded in preparing competent, caring, and qualified professional educators.
