Round-up: Seattle council delays preschool vote, study gives failing grade to teacher-prep programs

Seattle council delays preschool vote: The city’s universal preschool plan has been tabled for a week while council members consider a union-backed alternative. The competing plan would set policy on how much parents pay and how much child-care workers should earn, but it doesn’t stipulate how the city would pay for the proposal.

Study gives failing grade to teacher-prep programs (NPR): The National Council on Teacher Quality has released a new study saying teaching colleges don’t have strict enough admissions criteria and are failing to adequately prepare future teachers for the classroom. Critics have questioned the validity of the advocacy group’s research, saying it relies too heavily on syllabi, rather than direct interaction with teachers and students.

High-poverty schools struggle to close the poverty divide (NBC News): Public schools in Philadelphia have installed high-speed internet, but getting enough computers for every student remains a challenge.
