The University of Missouri system continues to oppose public release of records related to teacher training.
A Washington-based education group, The National Council on Teacher Quality, filed a civil lawsuit against the four-campus system in Boone County Circuit Court. The group is seeking course syllabi under Missouri's public records law as part of a nationwide effort to monitor what aspiring teachers learn at college. The results will be published next year in U.S. News & World Report.
The University of Missouri Press will close. That’s according to a press release issued today by the University of Missouri system. The UM system provides the University of Missouri Press with a $400,000 yearly subsidy, and according to the press release, the Press has been unable to operate without a deficit in recent years.
