Teaching Teachers: Facts & Figures.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
Findings are presented from a survey conducted by the Research About Teacher Education Project. The project is devoted to collecting information about institutions of higher education that engage in teacher education, as well as teacher education programs, faculty, and students. The data in this report were culled from analyses of three survey instruments--institutional, faculty, and students. The institutional survey solicited data characterizing the institutions and their teacher education programs, mission and structure, and areas of accreditation for the institutions. Data specific to teacher education were collected on number and types of programs, enrollments, level of accreditation and/or state approval, faculty and student demographics in relation to program type, program requirements for admission and exit, and faculty salaries and tenure. Following an introduction, four sections elaborate on the data collected. Section one presents the context for teacher education by examining data from the institutions as a whole and from the education unit. Section two concentrates on the anatomy of a program with a focus on secondary education. The third section looks at the education professoriate and section four looks at the students. The report concludes with a summary of highlights. (JD)
