I’ve made a little map showing the average number of stars awarded by the NCTQ to ed schools in each state. This particular map shows stars for undergraduate training for both elementary and secondary school teachers. Green is a high score and red is a low score.
The “winner” is Tennessee with 2.5 stars out of a possible 4.0. Maine is at the very bottom, with less than half a star. Maine just barely edges out Alaska and New Mexico for bottom of the NCTQ barrel status.
