Profile of Preservice Teacher Education Programs in Florida. Report of the Surveys Conducted by the Joint Executive and Legislative Task Force for Teacher Education Quality Improvement.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
Three types of surveys were developed to obtain specific recommendations from key educational personnel for improving preservice teacher education programs. Deans, directors, and chairpersons of Florida teacher education programs provided profiles of faculty and students; the institution's standards for admission, selection, and retention of students, promotion and tenure policies; and governance procedures. Chairpersons of elementary, secondary, and exceptional student education programs identified specific program components and provided information on clinical aspects of programs, including early field opportunities, public school involvement, and student teacher experiences. Individual faculty members supplied data on professional backgrounds and experiences and involvement in staff development activities. They also described policy making procedures regarding promotion, tenure, curriculum, and program changes; and were offered an opportunity to provide ideas and suggestions for program improvement. In this report, resulting data are presented with summary comments. Survey questionnaires are also appended. (JD)
