Public Purpose and the Preparation of Teachers for Rural Schools.
Theobald, Paul; Howley, Craig
Teacher Educator, v33 n3 p150-64 Win 1998
Examines the university's role in professionalizing rural teachers, contending that lack of a substantive definition of education's public purpose creates teachers who are unprepared to contribute meaningfully to the intellectual life of their communities. Teacher preparation programs should abandon the instrumental focus and confront unique opportunities to include three themes: sustainability, social justice, and democracy. (SM)
