Missouri’s Board of Education is moving forward with increased standards for the profession. The state recently adopted evaluations that will assess some teachers, in part, on how well students fare on state exams.

Now the state is going further.

Under a plan approved last month, the state will zero in on the effectiveness of teacher colleges.

The plan includes more frequent report cards on the colleges’ performance, a more uniform evaluation of student teachers, and higher grade-point average requirements for those in the program.
