LEC Named Top College by The Online College Database

Lake Erie College has been recognized as a top college for teacher education. The Online College Database's new ranking, "Top Colleges in Ohio Shaping the Next Generation," honors the post-secondary institutions in the state that graduated the most education and teaching professionals in 2012.

"Many colleges and universities have tremendous teacher education programs," said Doug Jones, founder of The College Database. "But which ones are producing the most young educators today? We wanted to identify the colleges making the largest impact on our students."

The College Database used the following methodology to identify the top colleges shaping the next generation:
  • Must be fully accredited
  • 4-year colleges only
  • Public or private, not-for-profit colleges only
  • Not for-profit schools
  • U.S. colleges only
  • Minimum of 10 grads from education or teaching programs in 2012
The College Database is a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to provide free information about education options both nationally and locally to students, parents and other interested parties. The goal is accomplished by making all information and tools on the site free and easy to access. While still a relatively young company, The College Database has become a leader in providing educational information to libraries, high schools and career centers across the country.
