The Practice of the Profession of Education in Diverse Settings.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
Preparation in education has always been considered a broad and useful background for persons choosing careers outside school settings. To meet the educational demands of a changing society, education professionals are needed to design and conduct training programs, prepare educational materials and consumer guides, provide personal and career counseling, and evaluate program and personnel effectiveness. A review of many existing programs at schools, colleges, and departments of education reveals considerable diversity in programs offered to education students going beyond the traditional school-related teacher education curriculum. Many institutions have expanded their mission to include the preparation of child care recreation personnel and counselors for a wide range of community and business settings, as well as programs for allied health, government and community agencies, business and industry, and museums. It is becoming increasingly important for schools of education to widen the career possibilities of education professionals. (JD)
