Eric.ed.gov – Colorado Commission on Higher Education: Report to the General Assembly. January 2008

This report describes the condition of teacher education preparation at authorized colleges and universities in Colorado, including the total program enrollments, enrollments by licensure or endorsement area, and student demographic and institutional-level data. All approved teacher preparation programs at institutions of higher education, public and private, are compliant with the state’s performance based teacher education measures. The total number of undergraduate teacher education candidates grew twelve percent between 2006 and 2007. The number of traditional-aged students enrolled in teacher education programs grew by forty-seven percent. Students who are members of ethnic minority groups represented small numbers of enrollees in teacher preparation programs. There was a slight decrease in the representation of minority students in teacher education programs from 2006 to 2007: the decrease in Hispanic teacher education candidates is of particular concern, when the overall Hispanic population in the state is increasing. Another challenge continues to be the small number of students enrolled in math and science endorsement areas. The percentage of students in these areas remained static from 2006 to 2007. On a positive note, data in this report suggest that teacher education preparation programs continue to be pursued by both traditional and non-traditional students. There was a significant increase in traditional students enrolling in teacher education programs, but older students still comprise fifty percent of teacher education candidates. Among all licensure areas, twenty-one percent of teacher candidates are 35 years of age or older, suggesting that many of these students may be making career changes. Growth continued in the private sector in 2006-2007, particularly among for-profit institutions. (Contains 3 tables.)
