This document describes a project designed to (1) determine the status of teacher education in Ohio, (2) identify more desirable approaches and structures for providing such education, and (3) propose alternative means for achieving it. Ohio preservice education, continuing education, and differentiated staffing schema were surveyed, and the results were used to identify potential improvements and to suggest models for such improvement. This survey included (1) review of the research and literature; (2) review of preservice education in eight Ohio institutions; (3) analysis of responses from 298 professors, teachers, principals, and students to a teacher education instrument; (4) discussions with consultants; (5) visitations; (6) review of continuing education and differentiated staffing programs; and (7) analysis of six model elementary teacher education proposals as submitted to the USOE. A bibliography of related sources is appended. (Author/LLR)
