University of Alaska President Jim Johnsen said he will recommend the University of Alaska Anchorage close its School of Education, followingits loss of national accreditation.

The UAA School of Education lost its accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) in January, meaning there was no guarantee that people who graduated with teaching degrees from UAA would actually get licenses to teach. In light of that, Johnsen ordered an expedited report to look at options.

The report analyzes three alternatives, including continuing to teach the affected programs as UAA seeks CAEP reaccreditation for the School of Education, or doing so for three years then closing the school after its current students graduate.
