Appeals Court: MnSCU Must Turn Over Syllabuses

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – An appeals court says Minnesota State College and Universities must release faculty course materials to an organization that scrutinizes teacher prep programs.

The court rejected MnSCU’s argument that the materials are copyright protected. The National Council on Teacher Quality sued MnSCU after it refused to hand over course materials for its education programs.

The Washington-based nonprofit wanted the syllabuses as part of its rankings on teacher prep programs. The council says its rating system helps aspiring teachers pick strong programs. But critics say the system is too narrow and relies on flawed information.

Reports say the ruling upholds a decision in Ramsey County District Court.
