College of Education receives highest rating for teacher preparation program

The College of Education at Augusta University recently earned an exemplary score of a Level 4 rating, the highest score available, on the 2020 Teacher Preparation Program Effectiveness Measures (PPEMs) published by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.

“We are excited about this exemplary rating from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission because it goes hand-in-hand with the fact that we have a 93% retention rate with our graduates from Augusta University’s College of Education who remain in the profession for at least five years or more,” said Dr. Judi Wilson, dean of the College of Education. “This rating reflects the hard work that our faculty, staff, students, alumni and our local partners in the school systems have done over the past year. It’s like a mirror. If you do the work, that work is reflected in the results.  This is just additional affirmation that we are constantly moving in the right direction and doing the right work.”
