Annual Report for 1975 by the National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development.
National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development, Washington, DC.
The National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development was established by law to review federal programs for the training and development of education personnel and report its findings and recommendations to the President and to Congress. In 1975, the council held four meetings. The first resulted in 15 recommendations concerning inservice teacher education, adult education, research, and other issues. Also, a draft report, "Gatekeepers in Education: A Report on Institutional Licensing," was discussed and adopted for publication at this meeting. The report was written to combat consumer abuse and improve standards for institutional licensing. The second meeting adopted a report on directions for the Teacher Corps. The third meeting discussed the council's testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Education and the Congress' reluctance to continue the Education Professions Development Act in a time of teacher surplus. The council's position was that, while recruitment of new teachers is no longer a problem, the priority has become quality of teachers and improvement of inservice education. The last meeting of 1975 left it unclear whether the council would be continued, but the staff was to develop an issues paper presenting the council's view of the federal role in education professions development. (The text of the law establishing the council and its responsibilities is included in this report, as are numerous details on selection of officers, reports approved, educational institutions visited, and other business).
