American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
A State Issues Clearinghouse was established by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Combined Task Force on Governmental Relations to monitor and track state activities that impact upon teacher education. This report presents the results of the first survey of the fifty states undertaken by the Clearinghouse. The nine policy areas which were part of the initial review are: (1) standards for admission into teacher education programs as well as changes in high school requirments that might influence the demand for new teachers; (2) incentives for students to enter teacher preparation programs and for career teachers to remain in the profession; (3) alternate certification models; (4) program curricula, including changes in standards for institutional program approval and changes in certification regulations; (5) capacity building for schools, colleges, and departments of education; (6) resources for research, data collection and evaluation; (7) faculty development activities; (8) professional development or inservice opportunities for practitioners; and (9) evidence of maintenance of equity.
