It's not yet decided whether UAA will reapply for accreditation for its teacher preparation programs

It’s not yet decided whether the University of Alaska Anchorage will reapply for accreditation for its seven teacher preparation programs that recently lost the approval of a national oversight body, according to the president of the state’s public university system.

It would take at least three years to gain re-accreditation and the process would consume significant time and resources, UA President Jim Johnsen told the state Senate Education Committee Tuesday morning.

Accreditation is crucial for Alaska’s teacher preparation programs. Alaska regulations require the programs have national accreditation or “substantially meet” the standards to get state approval, and the programs need that approval for their graduates to get Alaska teacher certificates.

The University of Alaska Board of Regents will ultimately decide whether UAA reapplies for the accreditation through the national Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation.

1. THIS IS A NO BRAIN-ER

If there is no accreditation then the education is WORTHLESS. Without accreditation then the UA should be renamed TRUMP UNIVERSITY in honor of another non accredited educational institution.....
