Professional Teaching Standards: A Comparative Analysis of Their History, Implementation and Efficacy
Call, Kairen
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v43 n3 Article 6 p93-108 Mar 2018
Since the publication of results from the first iteration of testing within the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the ensuing media consternation and political rhetoric about teacher quality in education systems around the world, professional standards for teachers have been considered, developed and implemented globally in various forms. Justified by the argument that they raise teacher quality which in turn raises student outcomes, professional standards for teachers are being considered as an integral part of the solution to current deficits in education. This article explores the forces driving and restraining professional standards for teachers within international and Australian contexts and identifies ways in which initial teacher education programs can support their successful implementation.
