Teacher Education That Promotes Educational Excellence: How to Know It When You See It.
Hawley, Willis D.
Few positive comments about the way the nation prepares its teachers have been made. Many teacher education programs are in disarray due to inept staff and curricula that have not kept up with research results. In addition, many state agencies have set teacher certification requirements that are political in nature. From current analyses of teacher education and recent research on effective teaching and learning, one can derive at least 10 criteria by which to judge the quality of teacher preparation programs. These criteria can serve as guidelines for the redesign of teacher education. In conclusion, the reform of education and the improvement of teacher education must go hand in hand. (BJD)
