The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence is continuing its series of meetings aimed at improving teacher quality in Kentucky.

A team of experts will focus Wednesday in Frankfort on teacher preparation programs.

The group is scheduled to hear from Deborah Ball, dean of the School of Education at the University of Michigan. It will also hear presentations from the University of Louisville and Asbury University.

The panel is preparing to make recommendations for the 2014 legislative session on new ways to measure teacher effectiveness as part of Kentucky's massive public school reform effort.

The teacher effectiveness panel is made up of educators, legislators, advocates and business people.
