A Viable Model for a College of Education.
Tyler, Ralph W.
A college of education cannot, and should not, try to assume the total university responsibility for helping professionals and laymen understand what is going on in the important enterprise of education. The college can, however, be the antenna of the university in finding crucial problems and can encourage university scholars to collaborate in solving them. Much emphasis in this paper is placed upon gaining a better picture of educational situations and problems because the rapid changes in our society are creating the need for new educational tasks. Two major functions for a college of education are 1) to bring the relevant scholarship of the university to bear on the practices and problems of education, and 2) to play a major role in the preparation of education personnel. Four areas which could benefit from systematic studies by groups of university scholars are 1) dissatisfaction about the education of teachers brought about by confusion over the rapid changes in social conditions, curriculum outlines, and the characteristics of teacher recruitees; 2) a need for involving a variety of university scholars; 3) the learning students require for acquiring and using appropriately the knowledge, skills, and emotional responses, and controls representing the important resources of a given subject; and 4) the kinds of constructive roles available for teachers.
