Improving Teacher Education.
Howey, Kenneth R.; And Others
This study deals with the problems of teacher education programs and suggests some methods for improvement. The pressures and restrictions currently levied on the field of teacher education are discussed, and an examination is given of various education departments' admission policies and procedures. Profiles of education students and faculty members are constructed. Difficulties involved with the acquisition and supervision of clinical experience are considered. A plea is made for the innovation of teacher education programs; both structural solutions and short-term strategies for this are suggested. (LH)
