ISSUES NOW CHALLENGING THE PROFESSION.
GODING, STOWELL C.
DESPITE ADVANCES MADE TOWARD THE CREATION OF A GENUINE PROFESSION, THE RESULTS OF A SURVEY OF LANGUAGE TRAINING PROGRAMS REVEAL THAT A NUMBER OF TRAINING PROBLEMS PERSIST. THE ONE OF UTMOST CONCERN IS THE ADMISSION AND RETENTION OF STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM ON THE BASIS OF NOT ONLY THEIR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE COMPETENCIES, BUT ALSO THEIR PERSONALITIES AND LANGUAGE TEACHING POTENTIAL. A GREAT DEAL OF THE BLAME FOR THE INADEQUATE TRAINING OF SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF LANGUAGES CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO THE INEFFECTIVENESS OF THE UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS. NATIONAL CERTIFICATION STANDARDS AND ACCREDITATION OF TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS WOULD HELP ELIMINATE FROM THE PROFESSION THE INADEQUATELY TRAINED AND POORLY MOTIVATED LANGUAGE TEACHER. ALTHOUGH PROBLEM AREAS DO REMAIN, THE CREATION OF ERIC AND SUPPORTING PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS AND THE BREAKTHROUGHS IN LEGISLATION HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANT STEPS TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STRONGER PROFESSION.
