Summary of the Review of Committee Papers.
Tittle, Carol K.
Additional perspective on the program proposals developed by members of the Committee for National Program Priorities in Teacher Education was provided by a group of external reviewers representing community groups, school administrators and teachers, critics of teacher education, associations for professional groups in education, and university facilty and administrators-both in education and the liberal arts. Three sets of comments were received: a) ratings of a number of ideas in the papers, b) comments on the most and least useful aspects of each proposed program, and c) suggestions for ideas which reviewers felt were overlooked in the papers. A majority of reviewers rated as most important the establishment of performance-based programs, the development of measurement instruments, the individualization of programs, the establishment of parity groups for policy making, the development of a feedback system, the establishment of cooperative training complexes, and recruitment from minority groups. The idea of adapting programs to the local power structure and the concept of levels of criteria were also considered important. Ideas which reviewers suggested were overlooked are listed under the following headings: teacher education, general structure; teacher education, content; career factors; performance base; accountability; planning; OE goals and siting of projects and technical support and program development. (The CNPPTE report is SP 005 318; appendixes are SP 005 319 thru SP 005 325). (RT)
