Society, Schools, and Teacher Preparation. A Report of the Commission on the Future Education of Teachers. Teacher Education Monograph No. 9.
Orlosky, Donald E., Ed.
While the major thrust of this monograph is to recommend procedures for the preparation of teachers, it is also emphasized that educational reform and school improvement depend upon the realistic clarification of the separate and interdependent roles of society and the parents of students. This report presents recommendations for improving teacher preparation programs, followed by a number of themes that develop their underlying rationale. The themes, selected on the basis of their significance, are: (1) "Fundamental Reforms" (Donald E. Orlosky); (2) "The New America for the Third Millenium" (William Georgiades); (3) "Teacher Supply and Demand" (Chris Pipho); (4) "Technology and Teaching" (Howard Mehlinger); (5) "Governance Issues in the Education Profession" (Joan Inglis); and (6) "Schools, Communities, and the Private Sector" (Joel L. Burdin). Fifty-two references are included. (JD)
