Climate Survey. Teacher Education and Certification.
Counts, Sharon; Silverman, Debra Larson
A summary is presented of findings from a survey that sought to record the opinions of teachers and administrators in the Alaskan schools on key educational issues. Results of previous nationwide surveys are synthesized on the topics of teacher education programs, teacher certification, inservice teacher education programs, and incentive programs. Responses from Alaskan educators on important issues that will have an impact on teacher education and certification in their state are presented in the second section. The issues include: (1) attracting persons to the teaching profession; (2) teacher preparation; (3) teacher certification issues; (4) recertification of teachers; and (5) incentive programs. The final section offers statistical results and data analysis of a statewide climate survey. Graphs and charts depicting results are accompanied by narrative analysis of the issue under consideration and the educators' opinions. The statewide climate survey instrument is appended. (JD)
