I Would Simply Say, Keep Going
LaBoskey, Vicki Kubler
Issues in Teacher Education, v24 n1 p101-107 Spr 2015
This article describes the author's experience as President of the California Council on Teacher Education (CCTE) from 2004-2006, which began under difficult conditions due to her daughter's terminal illness. The author shares her story of how the organization supported her during this difficult time, which she feels is representative of the organization and the field of work that it embodies and champions. "No Child Left Behind" was in its heyday, and despite the pressure involved in the new focus on tests and preparation to meet new guidelines, CCTE continued to give priority to issues of equity and social justice, which necessarily includes attending to the whole child/person and their intellectual, social, and emotional well-being and development. Resolutions passed during her presidency are discussed. Highlights during the author's presidency include a conference when representatives from many organizations engaged in conversations that resulted in promises made for ongoing engagement, and membership and resource development advancements. The author offers encouragement to the CCTE for continued progress in greater educational equity and social justice for all children.
