Impact on P-12 Learning (Initial)

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 2019-20 through 2021-22 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. In addition, compared to last year WSC demonstrated an increase of +0.3 in their average rating.  A summary of these results follows:
