Throughout the online version of the Statewide Standard, you will learn about the accomplishments of several of these outstanding professional educators. Their success is a testament to the enduring commitment Illinois State University makes to the work of preparing the best teachers and educational leaders to meet the challenges of teaching in an increasingly globalized society. We hope that you will also find this to be a valuable source of information that contributes to the dialogue on the state of public school education.
