UL Lafayette’s rigorous degree program for teachers, hailed recently by federal Education Secretary Arne Duncan as “real change, based upon the real outcomes of children,” is getting some national media attention.

Larry Abramson’s report for National Public Radio is expected soon. To read Nick Anderson’s report in the Post, click here.
