Realities and Revolution in Teacher Education. Report Number 6.
Commission on Public School Personnel Policies in Ohio, Cleveland.
This report is based upon an extensive examination of current teacher education and certification practices in Ohio. Examination of current practices was carried out primarily through written surveys, interviews with key persons across the state, and open hearings. Six areas covered include background and action on the report, preservice preparation, transition into teaching, professional development of teachers, teacher certification, and organizing for action. Preservice preparation covers initial training, a 5-year program for teachers, selection of students of teacher preparation, teacher educators, the role of academic professors, and fifth year programs. The transition into teaching indicates the possible areas of difficulties and a new plan for entrance into teaching. The need for professional growth, professional activity, action needed for growth, a district plan, and the role of universities are discussed under the professional development of teachers. A summary of recommendations and an appendix concerning competency based teacher education are included. (Author/JMJ)
