Oklahoma State Commission for Teacher Preparation.
The Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation was established in 1992 to develop a new competency-based teacher preparation and professional development system. The commission's report begins with the Vision Statement and responsibilities of the new system, followed by "A New Vision: Educators as the Key to Educational Excellence" by Representative Don McCorkell and an introduction to the report by Senator Penny Williams. The Executive Summary outlines the Commission's findings and recommendations in the areas of recruitment, retention, and re-entry; preservice teacher preparation; inservice teacher professional development; administrator preparation; licensure and certification; trailblazer schools and model learning programs; assessment; and career education. Differences between the existing and the proposed teacher preparation/staff development system are described, followed by discussions of fundamental principles, competencies, and preparation and professional development systems for preservice teachers, inservice teachers, and administrators. Commission member biographies, and a glossary are also included. (Contains 320 references.) (ND)
