San Francisco, Calif., (December 9, 2013) -- The College Database - the most current and comprehensive source for U.S. college and university data has named its top colleges in the state for teacher education. The new list entitled "Top Colleges in Illinois: Shaping the Next Generation," highlights the post-secondary institutions in the state that produced the most education graduates during the 2012 school year.
"Many colleges and universities have tremendous teacher education programs," said Doug Jones, founder of The College Database. "But which ones are producing the most young educators today? We wanted to identify the colleges making the largest impact on our students."
The College Database used the following methodology to identify the top colleges shaping the next generation:
- Must be fully accredited
- 4-year colleges only
- Public or private, not-for-profit colleges only
- No for-profit schools
- U.S. colleges only
- Minimum of 10 grads from education or teaching programs in 2012
