The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is the accrediting organization for US schools, colleges/universities and departments of education.
Accreditation is “a process for assessing and enhancing academic and educational quality through voluntary peer review. NCATE accreditation informs the public that an institution has a professional education unit that has met state, professional, and institutional standards of educational quality.” (Learn more at: http://www.ncate.org/)
