Alternative Approaches to the Certification of Teachers.
Patton, James M.
The present educational reform movement has been focused upon quantitative and qualitative issues related to the way teachers and other instructional personnel are educated. Alternative models for educating teachers which differ from the traditional college or university teacher education program have again become attractive. This paper offers a philosophical/theoretical framework for the development of such programs among local school divisions, state departments of education and institutions of higher education. The issues of quality control and formative and summative evalutions of alternative teacher certification programs are explored. The approach described in this article calls attention to the importance analyzing the success of the products of those who complete these alternative programs. (Author/LR)
