Admission, Retention and Guidance of Teacher Candidates.
Miami Univ., Oxford, OH. School of Education.
This document contained a proposed set of guidelines for admission and selective retention of students in programs of teacher preparation at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. The presentation was divided into three parts: a) a rationale, b) description of the plan, and c) a set of questions and answers. The rationale recommended the establishment of criteria, standards, and procedures for admission and selective retention of first-year and transfer students to the teacher education program. The outline of admission and selective retention requirements called for a decision by the student regarding his continuation in the program. This decision was based on self-evaluation and evaluation by a designated faculty panel. The first decision came during the freshman year; the second came in the sophomore year; the third preceded the student teaching program. The student, therefore, had the opportunity to evaluate his needs and successes throughout the program. This evaluation technique was also applied to the transfer students and the selective retention program. The questions posed in the final section of the proposal dealt with the supply and demand of teachers and effects of this on teacher training. Suggestions for evaluation of the proposal were made.
