Teachers and Teacher Education: Essays on the National Education Goals. ERIC Teacher Education Monograph No. 16.
Guy, Marilyn J., Ed.
Six national education goals to be achieved by the year 2000 were established by the federal government and the nation's governors in 1990. The five essays in this monograph examine some of the changes taking place in society and in schools and colleges that are related to the six goals. The "Introduction" (Marilyn Guy) is followed by "Communities within Community" (Dolores Escobar and Carol C. Mukhopadhyay), which discusses the multiple and integrated cultures that shape the environments of today's students. "Family and School Coalitions: Surmounting Obstacles" (Earline D. Kendall) explores issues connected with changes in family life and parent participation. "Collaborating To Improve Teacher Education: A Dean of Education's Perspective" (Iris M. Tiedt) highlights the need for education faculty to take the initiative in the process of incorporating the perspectives of teachers, business leaders, and community social workers into the total curriculum of preservice teachers. "Teaching and Teacher Education: An Institutional Challenge and Commitment" (Janet S. Gross) discusses teacher education and its redesign from the liberal arts faculty perspective. Finally, "Professional Development Schools and Teacher Education: Policies, Problems, and Possibilities" (Dale L. Lange) provides a historical analysis of the professional development school (PDS) model and relates some of the challenges and opportunities which face school-university partnerships that are attempting to establish PDSs.
