The Tennessee Board of Examiners and Office of Teacher Licensure reviewed the King
School of Education’s Teacher Education programs on March 2-6, 2013. All programs
reviewed, both undergraduate and graduate, were found to be compliant and met all
Dr. Cara Anderson, dean of King’s School of Education stated, “The review takes place
once every seven years, looking at both continuing and new programs. This year, the
new programs which were reviewed included the Master of Education in Curriculum and
Instruction, Music Education K-12, Instrumental and Vocal, and Physical Education,
licensure and non-licensure.” The State of Tennessee utilizes the standards of excellence
set forth by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) to
assess all education programs.
Over the past six years, King’s education department has seen a tremendous growth
from 25 students to now more than 200 students training to become education professionals.
“Our students benefit when our programs are assessed and deemed compliant,” said Anderson.
“Our community benefits because our teacher candidates seek and take teaching positions.
King’s teacher education graduates have a strong reputation in the region and beyond
and are increasingly sought after by public school administrators seeking to fill
positions with the most qualified candidates.”
Within six months of graduation, 91% of King’s Education graduates from May 2012 were
employed in the field of teaching. Three years ago the percentage was 83%, and, two
years ago it was 87%. Anderson commented, “We are delighted with these numbers and
hope to see the upward trend continue.
Currently, students in the School of Education have bachelor’s degree options in Interdisciplinary
Studies with elementary education (K-6) licensure; Interdisciplinary Studies with
middle grades (4-8) licensure; Music Education (K-12), both instrumental and vocal;
Athletic Training Education; Physical Education with and without licensure; and Secondary
Education licensure for Biology, Chemistry, English, French, History, History/Government,
Math, Physics, and Spanish. Students also have the opportunity to study for their
Master of Education (MEd) degree.
