Cumberland University Receives Tennessee’s Highest Rating For Training Future Teachers
Rep. Mark Pody applauds hard work of Cumberland administration
(NASHVILLE) – In December, Cumberland University received exciting news: the education program at the college received the highest rating available on the Tennessee Board of Education’s Report Card for Teacher Preparation. The report card reveals how well the state’s colleges and universities are training future teachers for success in the classroom.
This highest ranking, a category 4, places Cumberland alongside schools that have been top performers on the Report Card year after year. Overall, Cumberland University is the smallest higher education institution to receive the category 4 ranking and outperformed Vanderbilt University, Belmont University, Middle Tennessee State University, and the University of Tennessee.
“This new Report Card ranking confirms what we have known for years — the education program at Cumberland University is the absolute best in the state,” said Representative Mark Pody. “Every single person at Cumberland deserves a huge round of applause for this achievement, especially Dr. Stumb, Dr. McKee, and Dr. Cummings. I look forward to seeing the tremendous strides forward that Cumberland takes next.”
