Online database recognizes MSSU’s teacher education efforts

Joplin, MO (SNS) – Missouri Southern State University has been recognized as a top college for teacher education.

The Online College Database's new ranking, "Top Colleges in Missouri: Shaping the Next Generation," honors the post-secondary institutions in the state that graduated the most education and teaching professionals in 2012.

Missouri Southern ranked in the top third in the “Shaping the Next Generation” list, and in the top 12 in “Student-Teacher Ratio.” The university also was ranked among the top 10 in the “Missouri 20-30” club, which is comprised of colleges and universities that have an annual tuition under $20,000 and an average starting salary over $30,000.

Based in San Francisco, Calif., the Online College Database was formed with the vision of providing “the most accurate information to ease the decision-making process for students of all ages who are considering the education field,” said Doug Jones, founder of the organization.

The website, said Jones, gives visitors to the website “an idea of the rankings for schools that do a great job of fueling the educational ecosystems.”

“It’s good to be recognized for a job well done,” said Dr. Al Cade, interim dean of the School of Education at Missouri Southern, noting that the rankings are “just a piece of the puzzle.”

“We continue both as a school and as a department to work to produce the very best teachers for our area schools.”
