This collection of papers describes the development of the Charter School of Education and Human Services at Berry College.

Faculty in the school wrote scholarly manuscripts describing the transition to a charter school and exploring the implications of their work for improving the quality of teacher education elsewhere. The papers are: "Editor's Commentary: Transforming Teacher Education" (Brian Jory); "A Charter School of Education and Human Services" (Jacqueline M. McDowell); "Do I Want To Be a Teacher? Goals and Reflections of a New Orientation to Education Courses" (Mary C. Clement); "The Evangelist and the Conscientious Objector: Using Research in Consumer Behavior to Maximize the Effectiveness of Faculty Professional Development in Technology" (Lawrence Baines and D. Lynnwood Belvin); and "Multicultural Teacher Education in the Charter School of Education and Human Sciences: Turning Good Students Into Better Teachers" (Wade A. Carpenter and Steven Bell).
