If Louisiana-Monroe Can Do This, Why Not Chicago State?


While folks in DC are talking about revamping ed school teacher preparation, and eight states not including IL are moving towards making changes, the University of Louisiana-Monroe has already done it, according to this NPR segment from last night (Improving Lousiana's schools, starting with teachers): raised admissions standards; made
students take more courses in the subjects they'd be teaching, like
science; and tripled the amount of time they spent in the classroom.  I know that three IL schools are piloting the TPA thing, but have any of the Chicago-area ed schools made the same aggressive moves to revamp their programs?  And if not, then why not?
