Schools of Education in a Period of Declining and Changing Student Interest.
Riggs, Bob
A decline in the college-going rate for high school graduates, and the shrinking public school population with its resultant decline in the demand for new teachers, have both contributed to drops in enrollment which many schools of education are experiencing. There are ways, however, by which schools of education can avoid disastrous results. These include the following: (a) eliminate nonproductive programs and courses, (b) retrain faculty in areas of declining interest for employment in growth or stable fields, (c) offer elective courses which appeal to noneducation majors, (d) plan new programs based on existing faculty and physical resources, (e) recruit faculty with flexible, broad-based academic preparation, (f) develop cooperative programs with other academic departments, (g) lobby for more favorable and equitable funding, (h) consolidate and integrate training programs among institutions producing a small percentage of teachers, and (i) prepare students for two or more career options.
