The Role of SCDE's in Serving Non-School Educators.
Danley, W. Elzie
Schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDE's) can respond to changes in enrollment patterns by reassessing their goals, and by focusing on the needs of educators to function in new and diverse situations. Many SCDE's provide courses or services that are helpful to nonschool educators, who have been described as educational services personnel or human services personnel. Twenty-two institutional representatives of the Tennessee Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (TACTE) were surveyed to determine their perceptions of: (1) roles they should play in preparing nonschool educators; (2) current institutional response to nonschool educators; and (3) problems of limited resources in implementing such programs. The availability of twenty core competencies was identified within present curricula. It was found that, although most of the institutions were making efforts to meet the needs of nonschool educators, few had a degree program. It was suggested that the TACTE support the SCDE's in meeting the needs of nonschool educators by providing a forum to share ideas and models, and to provide technical assistance to member institutions.
