RIC education programs get ACEI recognition

Posted 9/9/13

PROVIDENCE – Two Rhode Island College Feinstein School of Education and Human Development programs have earned national recognition for excellence in development, learning and motivation, curriculum, instruction, assessment and professionalism.

RIC’s elementary-education undergraduate degree program and elementary-education master’s program earned recognition that is valid for the next seven years from the Association for Childhood Education International, a specialized professional association.

“The national recognition is rewarding and we are very proud of it,” said Karen Castagno, interim dean of the school. “The faculty values the recognition, and they work hard to ensure that our teacher candidates meet these international standards.”

The Feinstein School of Education and Human Development is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Its programs are approved by the R.I. Department of Education. The standard recognitions are voluntary. Castagno said RIC and the University of Rhode Island are the only teacher-preparatory programs in the state that engage in achieving voluntary professional society recognition.

More than 25 RIC education programs have received specialized association recognition. •
