Impact on P-12 Learning
Data were gathered related to employer satisfaction of first year teachers in Nebraska through the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) survey sent to principals. In the 2017-18 through 2019-20 Nebraska First Year Teacher Surveys, principals responded overwhelmingly that teachers who graduated from Wayne State College consistently had a positive impact on P-12 student learning and development, and that Wayne State College graduates compared very favorably with graduates from all other teacher-preparation programs across the state. A summary of these results follows.
