This report is a summary of the National Survey of the Preservice Preparation of Teachers. It presents data on the condition of preservice teacher education and summarizes future planning activities now underway in teacher education institutions.

Several problem areas in teacher education are illuminated. Five major topics are examined and discussed: (1) teacher supply and demand; (2) fiscal issues in teacher preparation; (3) professional trends; (4) demographic characteristics of recent graduates from teacher education programs; and (5) experimental developments and their impact on teacher preparation. A technical description of the study is appended. (JD)
