To our iteachTEXAS students and prospective students,
You may have been reading news reports about a top Texas-based competitor to iteach that has been accused of poor business practices by its students, and harshly evaluated by Texas state regulators. An audit by the State Board for Education Certification (SBEC) found the company to be out of compliance in key state standards, including admission, curriculum and governance. It is now considering putting the company on accredited probation.
The unfortunate side effect of bad press like this is that it can cast aspersions on all companies offering Alternative Certification education in Texas.
Here are some important facts about iteach that can ease your mind that our company is truly the best choice for people who have a bachelor’s degree and would like to switch careers to become a K-12 teacher.
- Rigorous CAEP accreditation. iteach is the only non-higher education institution in Texas that is CAEP accredited. CAEP is the gold standard in teacher certification accreditation. This seal of approval is evidence that our program is of exceptional quality.
- 12:1 Supervisor Ratio. iteach teacher-candidates receive outstanding classroom mentorship from experienced educators. This high-quality coaching and support is crucial to first-year success.
- Ongoing Access to Teaching Channel. The most extensive video collection in the world of top teachers sharing their proven methods is made available to all iteach program enrollees. This exposes our students to more than 100 professional development courses, webinars and other resources to enable teachers to perform at their best.
