Andrews, L. O.
This paper offers ten detailed suggestions to help units of the Association of Teacher Educators meet present and future needs in education. These suggestions cover areas including a) the creation of a survey group of teachers to act as a reference group, b) quality assessment of student teaching, c) cost assessment of student teaching and the collection of data with an already available formula, d) assessment of professional practices, e) operational efficiency developed by a bulletin with suggestions for setting up a focal point and enlarging a task force to insure that all agents involved in operating school-age relations are represented, f) standards for cooperating teachers, g) performance-based criteria for certification, h) selection into teacher education, i) design for an early major experience for all prosepctive teachers, and j) new arrangements for student teaching and teacher education centers. Other more general suggestions include ATE organizational and statewide concerns, important issues at several different levels, and individual institutional concerns. A final observation suggests a 5-day conference of 20 to 30 committed professionals to study a design-strategy session for state activities or a planning session for methods to aid individual colleges upgrade their education programs.
