The Cato College of Education is having a good year.  It was recently selected as one of five North Carolina Universities to be a Teaching Fellow partner institution – a major achievement. This comes on the heels of the successful opening of the Charlotte Teacher Early College, a five-year program for CMS students interested in an educational career.
