schoolofeducation-copurCLEMSON — Clemson University’s Eugene T. Moore School of Education has been named one of the best value teaching programs in the U.S., according to Best Value Schools, a website that provides information about higher-education value, financial aid and return on investment.

The ranking was created using National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator data to identify the most affordable competitive institutions offering degrees in teaching and education.

Clemson University, which ranked 27th, was noted for its Upstate Writing Project, which seeks improve student writing achievement by improving the teaching of writing, and Call Me MISTER, an initiative that strives to increase diversity in teaching at underserved schools in at-risk communities.

“We are pleased to be recognized for the value of our programs,” said George J. Petersen, founding dean of the Eugene T. Moore School of Education, “but we are most proud that we maintain excellence in teaching, research and service while keeping an eye on affordability. It is all part of our effort as a school to be a transformative leader in systematically improving education, beginning at birth.”

The Best Value Schools website provides rankings and profiles of degree programs in a variety of the most common degree areas.
