Teacher Voices: Why Didn't They Teach Me (or Warn Me) about This in College?
College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
This report is the sixth installment in "Teachers Are the Center of Education," a series created to highlight the critical importance of teachers, salute their great work and amplify their voices. The teachers in this report readily acknowledge that schools of education play an important role in preparing them for classroom success, and they appreciate the job they do. But they also believe there is considerable room for improvement. Underlying the four recommendations presented in this paper is the principle that what is taught in schools of education must better reflect the needs of classroom teachers. This will only be accomplished when schools of education develop and deliver their course work with more formal, ongoing and substantial input from practicing classroom teachers. [For the fifth installment, see ED519458.]
