Education for 1984 and After.
Olson, Paul A., Ed.; And Others
This book is a study document of the directorate of the Study Commission on Undergraduate Education and the Education of Teachers. This document is a result of a conference of teacher education administrators held in Chicago in July 1971. The document presents informed opinion on a variety of issues relevant to preparing education personnel. Sections of the study deal with a) the assessment of community needs and the role of educational institutions in that community, b) the fulfillment of educational responsibilities by the study committee on a noncompensatory basis, c) the need to develop and respect cultural pluralism, d) the need for further study in the area of credentially, e) the creation of formats to assure access to the teaching profession regardless of background, differences or culture, f) the definition of a positive process to upgrade teacher standards, and g) development of a management system which will create the opportunity to relate schools of education with schools of arts and science in ways which will not permit a division of responsibility. Several conclusions reached from the discussions were potentially useful. Further study will be made before the formulation of initial recommendations are made. (MJM)
