70 Years and Going Strong
Jones, Alan H.
Issues in Teacher Education, v24 n1 p161-170 Spr 2015
The survival and prosperity of the California Council on the Education of Teachers/California Council on Teacher Education (CCET/CCTE) over its 70 years of existence is remarkable, especially given the historic roller coaster of educational policy and practice in the United States--the ups and downs of school financing, in addition to the ins and outs of methodology, reading instruction, assessments, and high-stakes testing. Working as the executive secretary with 10 CCET/CCTE Presidents gives the author a unique perspective into the organization. The author attributes the success of the CCET/CCTE to several factors, and discusses the following: (1) Policy; (2) Membership; (3) Funding; (4) Journals and Research; (5) Planning; and (6) Semi-Annual Conferences. Every educator in California has a stake in CCTE, and CCTE has a stake in every one of them, which results in the profession and organization remaining strong.
