New Generation of Educators Initiative

This study investigates a multiyear effort to ensure that the California State University teacher preparation programs are producing the teachers California K–12 school districts will need as they complete their transition to CCSS and NGSS standards.


The New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI) was a multiyear effort to ensure that the California State University (CSU) teacher preparation programs were producing the teachers California K–12 school districts needed as the state transitioned to the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Launched by CSU in partnership with the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, the initiative also aimed to build the capacity of both individual campuses and the CSU system as a whole to collect, analyze, and use data to drive programmatic decision-making.

SRI and WestEd jointly conducted an external evaluation of the initiative at eleven CSU campuses: Bakersfield, Channel Islands, Chico, Dominguez Hills, Fresno, Fullerton, Long Beach, Monterey Bay, Sacramento, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and Stanislaus. The goal was to investigate the teacher preparation pipelines, changes to the nature of credentialing programs, effectiveness of teachers, and campus systems for supporting ongoing improvement.

Researchers analyzed quantitative and qualitative data to examine individual campus efforts to transform teacher preparation, how well these efforts were being implemented, and to what extent they resulted in more effective teachers. In turn, the evaluation supported funded campuses in building the capacity to self-monitor their progress both during and after the study.

The evaluation summarized lessons learned for policymakers, university leaders, and educators interested in improving teacher preparation programs’ ability to graduate effective teachers of the new academic standards and to institutionalize data systems and processes to drive programmatic decision-making.
