National Trends. AACTE Research and Information Committee Reporting Out Session.
Sattler, Joan L.
National trends in teacher education are presented, based on 1990 to 1993 data from 497 institutions with teacher education units. Graphs illustrate the number of teacher education institutions by region; changes in enrollment, faculty, resources, and professional development from 1990 to 1993; and changes in each of these areas in each geographic region (North Central, Middle States, Western, New England, Northwest, and Southern). Trends include: (1) in 1994, compared to 1990, teacher education units in higher education in four of the six regions of the country were as well off or better off in terms of enrollment, number of faculty, and resources as measured in 1990 constant dollars; (2) the two exceptions were the teacher education units in the New England and Western regions, with declines in enrollment, faculty, and resources; and (3) faculty development diminished dramatically on a national level over the 1990 to 1993 time period. Regional trends were found to be divergent. (JDD)
