CLEVELAND - The National Council on Teacher Quality has released a study on college education programs. It's a survey examining the teacher preparation value of more than 1,000 college programs across the country.
In the study, the highest score is four stars and the research found that less than ten percent of rated programs earned three stars or more.
It said, "Only four programs, all secondary, earn four stars: Lipscomb and Vanderbilt, both in Tennessee; Ohio State University; and Furman University in South Carolina."
The data also reports that Ohio State is the only institution that earned more than three stars for both elementary and secondary programs.
Cleveland State received less than one star for its graduate programs in elementary and secondary education. Kent State's graduate secondary education programs also received less than one star.
