Preservice Teachers' Perspectives of the Emphasis on Stewardship from Their Initial Teacher Preparation
Yontz, Brian D.
Action in Teacher Education, v35 n5-6 p344-353 2013
The stewardship of schools is central to the renewal and preservation of that which is precious in our nation's schools. This study examined perceptions of future teachers as to the degree to which their teacher preparation program emphasized the idea of stewarding schools. In addition this article outlines specific emerging aspects of the stewardship construct that can be integrated into teacher education curricula. With a theoretical foundation that initial teacher preparation provides the foundation for teacher beliefs and practices, gaining insight how teacher preparation emphasizes the stewardship of schools provides a better understanding of the current milieu in schools. Results of this study and follow-up research will allow for a fuller discussion around the stewardship of schools and will inform those who prepare teachers to work in our nation's schools.
