Generalizations in Teacher Education: Seductive and Misleading.
Gitomer, Drew H.; Latham, Andrew S.
Journal of Teacher Education, v51 n3 p215-20 May-Jun 2000
Generalizations about problems and solutions facing teacher education are often oversimplified and misleading. Examinations of teacher supply and demand and teacher ability should consider local demand and content-area need. Teachers with content-area certification have stronger academic profiles than those with general certification. Raising certification standards must involve attention to recruitment and retention of highly qualified, demographically diverse candidates. (SM)
