Teacher Education Program Review, Part I.
Stedman, Donald; And Others
This program review examined the Colleges of Education in six of Florida's nine State University System (SUS) universities. The review was designed to assess the strength and effectiveness of the colleges and their teacher preparation programs, to evaluate the extent to which the colleges were meeting the objectives of university-wide planning, and to develop recommendations and plans of action that would strengthen teacher education and the public schools of Florida. The review involved joint activities and materials of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the SUS of Florida, and the Florida Department of Education. Ten recommendations are made to the SUS, focusing on such areas as academic programs, teacher certification programs, master plan goals, and preparation for national accreditation. Institutional reports are then provided for the University of Florida, Florida State University, University of South Florida, Florida Atlantic University, University of Central Florida, and University of North Florida. The institutional reports provide general findings and recommendations, followed by descriptions and concerns in specific areas such as faculty, students, resources, governance, curriculum, and relationship to the world of practice. Appendices contain a curriculum vita for the lead consultant, administrative items, a 1989 progress report on master plan goals for teacher education, and a glossary. (JDD)
