Kentucky and six other states will participate in a pilot program to train teachers.

The seven states - which also include Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts and Washington - will work over two years with educators, training programs, colleges and universities, and school districts to improve teacher preparation.

The Network for Transforming Education Preparation was created by the Council of Chief State School Officers. Gov. Steve Beshear said Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday served on the council's Task Force on Education Preparation and Entry into the Profession.

A news release from Beshear's office said 17 national organizations will support the states' work to bring about change in educator preparation.

Holliday says more is expected of students and teachers, and it's important to make sure teachers are prepared for the task.
