U.S. Teacher Education Trends, 1990-92.
Parker, Franklin
Pressure to upgrade education standards, especially from the six national goals for U.S. education set forth in President Bush's America 2000 program, has affected teacher education. In addition, other pressure has come from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards' plan to certify teachers nationally after 1993-94; the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, which accredits under half of the approximately 1,200 U.S. teacher education institutions; John I. Goodlad's teacher education reform plan which led to the creation of 8 pilot Centers of Pedagogy similar to the Holmes Group's (96 education deans at major research universities) Professional Development Schools. Other trends disscussed in the paper are: alternative teacher certification, the Teach for America program, teacher education reform, and teachers who leave teaching or remain in the public school system.
