Administration/Funding/Faculty Recruitment and Staff Development in Teacher Education: Problems, Issues and Strategies Related to the Preparation and Survival of Black Public School Teachers.
Jones, J. B.
Four specific topics in teacher education are addressed. The first of these is the control of teacher education, policy formation, and governance. These administrative issues are considered in the light of the complex interaction between interest groups, the power of state and local control of education, and professional organizations. The second topic, funding, is examined with particular attention to the private philanthropy and public revenues that are needed if equality programs are to be available in teacher education for low income students who cannot meet the high tuition cost of private colleges. Beset by inflation, school bureaucracy, and loss of community support, teachers are turning to other careers to save their dignity and financial security. This topic is explored with an analysis of effective recruitment of teacher education faculty. The final topic considered is that of staff development. In order to respond to the many critics of education, alternatives must be found. As new ideas emerge, they must be made known to faculty members and administrators who are charged with making major alterations in the educational experiences offered in higher education. In discussing these four topics, significant issues, problems, and strategies for change are outlined for each. (JD)
