There is a concerning trend in teacher preparation program enrollment and completion rates from 2000–2017, using the most recent population data available from the US Department of Education, Higher Education Act Title II State Report Card System. Authors contextualize these trends alongside national education policies, such as No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and the Common Core State Standards to discuss the potential of these policies as catalysts for the substantial observed declines. Using a local context in New Mexico as an example, they discuss how such policies may be impacting teacher production.
