Social Needs and Teacher Training: A Historical Survey.
Brottman, Marvin A.
Teacher training procedures and curricula are described as they relate to social and educational needs throughout American history. The lag between training procedures and the needs of the time is documented, and those elements of curricula not included in training programs are identified. A review of historical events, documents of national surveys, and educational practices and needs shows that teacher training practices were slow in responding to identified needs of schools and society. As a result of this review, it is suggested that teacher training alone will not increase the proficiency of teachers to the extent demanded by the public and the teaching profession. There is a need to include in the training process elements not derived from school needs or social needs; these are the personal needs of the prospective teacher. (Author)
