ECU ranked 2nd nationwide in national board certifications

North Carolina ranked first in the nation in national board certification of teachers, and East Carolina University earned a top ranking for newly certified alumni.

Appalachian State University leads the nation with 130 alumni who completed board certification in 2011. ECU came in 2nd with 118.

Teachers and counselors who completed national board certification in 2011 numbered 6,266, with 20% of those educators from North Carolina.

June Atkinson, state superintendent of the Public Schools of North Carolina, applauded the effort. She said, “National Board Certification is an incredibly rigorous process that requires teachers to look deep into how they provide classroom instruction to meet the academic needs of all their students. It requires a serious professional and personal commitment.

“We are so fortunate that so many of our teachers continue to be willing to make this commitment,” Atkinson said. “Our public school students are the ultimate winners as a result.”

The state’s total number of nationally board certified teachers numbers 19,193. That number includes 1,244 who were newly certified in 2011.

Nationwide there are 97,291 teachers who have completed the certification process.
