SAGU makes top Teacher Education colleges listWaxahachie, Texas — February 11, 2014 — The College Database named Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) 31 out of 67 on the "Top Colleges in Texas: Shaping the Next Generation" list that highlights post-secondary institutions in the state that produced the most education graduates during the 2012 school year.

Doug Jones, founder of The College Database said, "Many colleges and universities have tremendous teacher education programs, but we wanted to identify the colleges producing the most young educators that are making the largest impact today."

SAGU offers bachelor's degrees in Bilingual Education, Elementary Education, Middle and Secondary in English Language Arts/Reading and Social Studies/History, Music Education in Instrumental, Piano, and Vocal, Physical Education, Theater Education and an Associate of Arts in Education. Senior-level education majors are required to have 45 observation hours and more than 100 hours of hands-on student teaching by graduation.

Additionally, SAGU has a 100% passage rate on the State Teacher Certification. SAGU education majors provide literacy support and instruction through the SAGU/Shackelford Literacy Lab, celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, for students grades K-2 at Shackelford Elementary School in Waxahachie, Texas.

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.
