This report is about teacher preparation at the State University of New York. It is intended to inform discussion about issues that campuses and the system as a whole are confronting or will need to confront. The report is based on interviews with officials in teacher preparation programs and in the State Education Department; background research conducted by teacher education researchers; data and documents from the State Education Department and State University's System Administration Office; and many external documents and data sources describing teacher preparation, teachers, and teacher preparation programs. The report begins by describing the State University role in teacher preparation. Next, it discusses the current policy environment and issues under debate, and it describes new regulations adopted by the State Board of Regents. It provides a walk-through of teacher preparation at the State University, describing what students do in teacher preparation programs. It ends with issues and options that the University believes the Provost's Office should explore in greater depth. Two appendixes focus on New York teacher preparation and certification requirements and teacher supply and demand in New York. (Contains 23 references.) (SM)
