The Education Unit at Framingham State University strives to prepare its students for one of the worthiest and noblest of careers, the teaching profession. In order to achieve high standards of excellence members of the Education Unit encourage the development of teachers who are knowledgeable, skillful, caring, inclusive, ethical and professional. The philosophy, goals and purposes of the Education Unit are consonant with professional standards established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as requisite for approval of programs to prepare candidates for teacher licensure and for reciprocal licensure through the Interstate Certification Compact. They are designed to meet or align to national standards, including the standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, standards of specialized professional associations, and the Five Core Propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
