On behalf of the entire Teacher Preparation Strategies team, I want to express our sadness at the death of Barry Kaufman and our condolences to his wife of 50 years, Gail. Barry provided NCTQ with invaluable assistance for close to six years as a member of the Technical Panel for the Teacher Prep Review. Barry's expertise—gained from serving as an ed school dean and as a member of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing—was combined with an unwavering commitment to improve teacher preparation. He always made himself available to NCTQ staff for consultation and helped us to ensure that the picture of teacher prep painted in NCTQ reports is accurate. We will miss Barry's endless goodwill and spot-on advice!
