The Student NEA Looks at Accreditation.
National Student Education Association, Washington, DC.
This booklet is the result of a partnership project between the Student National Education Association (NEA) and the NEA Division of Instruction and Professional Development. It attempts to provide Student NEA members with background information about accreditation and certification in teacher education so that they can take action to make changes in teacher education programs. It provides an understanding of (1) the purpose of accreditation and the organizations involved in accreditation; (2) how these state, regional, and national associations are organized and operate; and (3) how they are interrelated. It also deals with the role of the teaching profession in accreditation, the problems and issues involved in accreditation of teacher education programs, and criticisms of the accreditation process. Finally, it explains how to become involved in organizations concerned with accreditation in order to make changes in teacher preparation programs. (BD)
