The University of Kansas Extended Teacher Education Program.
In the spring of 1981 the School of Education at the University of Kansas announced that students matriculating subsequent to that date would have to meet the requirements of a new teacher education program of 162 hours spread over five academic years. The decision to initiate an extended teacher education program culminated several years of planning by faculty in the School, faculty from other parts of the University, and colleagues from school districts in northeast Kansas. This paper chronicles the history of the School's decision, describes the major features of the new program, and reports some highlights of the four years of program implementation. In addition, the relationship of the new program to statewide reform activities is noted. (Auth/JD)
