Oregon State System of Higher Education, Portland. Office of Academic Affairs.
In 1997 The Oregon State System of Higher Education (OSSHE) assessed the status of Oregon's K-12 educator professions. Separate sections of this OSSHE report: (1) provide information about Oregon's K-12 educator professions, including data on students, personnel, and teacher training; Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) licenses and endorsement areas; and the areas TSPC has identified as having a shortage of applicants; (2) list the programs offered by the six OSSHE universities and eleven independent institutions that offer educator preparation programs; (3) highlight challenges affecting the preparation programs, including changes in enrollment, licensing statistics, funding and program standards, and efforts to meet Oregon's school improvement plan; (4) examine changes which will affect OSSHE programs, including TSPC's proposed changes to license structures and training programs and OSSHE's role in professional, research, program, and institutional partnership development; (5) describe each of the OSSHE's six preparation programs; and (6) examine statewide initiatives, including a proficiency-based admission standards system for higher education, a standards-based teacher education project, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program, and several language initiatives, including the OSSHE Japanese Language Project. Appended are tables detailing the production of Oregon-licensed educators from Oregon public and independent institutions for 1994-95, and OSSHE education degrees granted in 1995-96. (MAB)
