Teacher Education: Report from the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, Task Force on Improving Kentucky Schools.
Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, Lexington, KY.
The Prichard Committee, a citizens volunteer organization in Kentucky, has studied the current state of teacher education in Kentucky and presents its final recommendations. Teacher education reform has been slow in Kentucky due to its low priority on campus, the lack of a champion to push the reform, and the difficulties of instigating the reform, in general, due to already established certification and teaching guidelines. This report suggests that the solution to the challenge of slow reform is to follow the 1993 Governor's Task Force on Teacher Preparation recommendations, with substantial modifications, in the directions begun by the Education Professional Standards Board. Recommendations are individually described, and a detailed rationale presented for each one. A complete copy of the Task Force recommendations report is appended, followed by a discussion of suggested modifications to these recommendations. (NAV)
