Teacher Education Accreditation CouncilBrookville, N.Y. - The teacher education programs of the School of Education at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University have recently earned elite accreditation by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council, signifying that the undergraduate and graduate programs are exemplary in preparing competent, caring and qualified professional educators who will teach and lead in pre-K through grade 12 schools.

"Past, present and future students of C.W. Post's School of Education can be confident that their degrees meet the highest standards of quality," said Dr. Robert Manheimer, dean of the School of Education.

Students can choose from more than 70 bachelor's, master's, dual-degree and certificate programs in early childhood and childhood education as well as diverse professional programs in special education, autism, literacy, physical education and health education. The programs within the School of Education awarded the TEAC accreditation are Curriculum and Instruction, Physical Education and Movement Science, Special Education and Literacy, Art Education and Music Education.

With a focus on the healthy and whole human development of children, C.W. Post students receive hands-on, field-based experiences that bring them face-to-face with the realities of the classroom, the school and the community. Programs involve strong partnerships with local public and private schools, as well as family counseling and therapy clinics, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, day care centers and facilities for the mentally disabled and hearing and speech impaired. The Campus is home to clinical laboratories, an on-site interactive technology and distance learning center, a reading clinic, and a fully accredited speech and hearing lab.

"The School of Education is at the forefront of contemporary educational initiatives and trends, and continually integrates new instructional techniques into the curricula to reflect the dynamic and ever-changing character of urban and suburban life," said Dr. Manheimer. "The TEAC accreditation is further evidence that the C.W. Post School of Education has the syllabus, values and faculty needed to enable its graduates to succeed and excel in a classroom environment."

The Teacher Education Accreditation Council, founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving academic degree programs for professional educators of pre-K to grade 12.
