AACTE/Metropolitan Life Survey of Teacher Education Students.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This publication presents an overview and summary of the results of a survey of teacher education students. The survey is one component of a larger project to increase the number of minority teachers. The questionnaire was designed to probe the academic and socioeconomic backgrounds of teacher education students as well as their attitudes and perceptions toward teaching. Data were analyzed by race/ethnicity in order to determine the differences among students from various groups. The summary is organized in three sections relative to students' precollege, college, and teacher education expectations. The bulk of the document (25 pages) is devoted to the tabulation of selected question results; the 63-item questionnaire is appended. (JD)
