Condition of Teacher Education-1977, Summary Report.
Kuuskraa, Vello A.; And Others
Comprehensive assessment of the condition of teacher education necessitated detailed inquiry into five central areas: (1) What is the current and future market for trained education personnel? Has supply been adjusted to meet demand--and what mechanisms have been used in making this adjustment? What are the prospects for maintaining a reasonable equilibrium? (2) Are schools, colleges, and departments of education financially viable? What changes are now emerging as a result of the drastic fiscal and enrollment changes of the 1970s? Are these changes in the longterm public interest? (3) In what ways is teacher education acting on its concerns about the quality of the skills of new teachers? To what extent are the quality and accountability standards being achieved? (4) What types of people are entering the labor pools from which the nation's future teachers will be selected? (5) To what extent have new methods and techniques been adopted into the mainstream of teacher education? A technical summary of the study is appended. (Authors/JD)
