Essential Criteria for Teacher Preparation Programs.
National Student Education Association, Washington, DC.
The Student National Education Association (Student NEA) has developed criteria for teacher preparation programs which it feels reinforce current standards, emphasize particular elements within the standards, or generate goals that require the attention or consideration of conditions viewed to be essential to students but not present in all existing programs. The association hopes that these criteria can be first disseminated for use as the established guidelines for state and local chapters of the Student NEA, next as a document for use by administrative/faculty/student units for teacher education on college campuses, and finally as accepted criteria to measure the student dimension by National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) evaluation teams. This publication presents guidelines and questions for standards in the areas of (1) knowledge/theory/practice, (2) human relations, (3) field experience, (4) parent-teacher relationship, (5) student input, (6) assessment, (7) resources, (8) professionalism, and (9) professional teacher input.
