American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
The Research About Teacher Education (RATE) project, a longitudinal study ongoing since 1985, constitutes an effort to establish a reliable database about teacher education, and to provide descriptive information about programs, students, and faculty. The focus of this report is on leadership (department chairs and deans) in schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDEs). Data reported here were taken from institutional, administrator, and faculty questionnaires. The publication is organized into six sections: (1) introduction and methodololgy; (2) institutional characteristics; (3) deans and chairs of education--self-reports of background and role; (4) education faculty and their perceptions of leadership in SCDEs; (5) deans' and chairs' perceptions of governance, influence, and change in SCDEs; and (6) a summary. An extensive list of tables and figures is included. Appendices describe the RATE research team and participating institutions in the 1990 RATE V survey. (LL)
