I have written in the past about problems with reports on the teacher preparation industry issued by the National Council on Teacher Quality (see here and here, for example). In order to keep its name in front of the media in-between the releases of its annual major report on teacher preparation, NCTQ has released a series of studies of other aspects of teacher preparation. The latest in the series, “Easy A’s and What’s Behind Them” came out earlier this week. As with other studies released by NCTQ, this one has fatal flaws, and the Chronicle of Higher Education today published an opinion column on the report that I authored.
