The Tennessee Higher Education Commission released the 2012 Report Card on the Effectiveness of Teacher Training Programs today, showing the Memphis Teacher Residency (MTR) as the most effective teacher preparation program in the state. Sixty-four percent of MTR graduates show statistically significant positive results in teacher effectiveness. The next highest program reported that 25 percent of their completers provide statistically significant positive results in the classroom.
An excerpt from the Executive Summary of the 2012 Report Card states, “Two programs [out of 44] had completers with higher student achievement gains than veteran teachers in the subject areas in which adequate value added data are available for that program. These programs are Freed-Hardeman University and Memphis Teacher Residency.” MTR was also one of only six programs that had completers with higher student achievement gains than beginning teachers in the subject areas in which adequate value added data are available.
Congratulations to the talented MTR team, including staff, residents, and mentors. We are so proud to have you in the UTRU Network, and we wish you continued success with Memphis students!
