This report provides a review of current research and innovative programs and practices as viewed from an international perspective. To develop these volumes, the International Council on Education for Teaching (ICET) invited educators from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean to address teacher education and school reform. The theme was supported by plenary sessions and research-based paper presentations focusing on four topics: (1) enhancing values in school reform to promote democratic values and practice and develop a democratic pedagogy of school renewal; (2) fostering partnerships in school reform between schools and universities, with professional development schools, between professional and public schools, and between centers of educational development and public schools; (3) preparing teachers for school reform through innovations in preservice teacher education and their likely impact on schools; and (4) capitalizing on international collaboration for school reform by identifying national, regional, and international efforts for achieving school reform. These volumes outline key issues confronting educators and suggest successful strategies and practices for educators to model in pursuit of quality teacher education and school reform on the local, national, and international level.
