Thoughts on Teacher Education in the U.S.A.
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.
Journal of Education for Teaching, v28 n3 p233-37 Nov 2002
Describes U.S. teacher education reform, noting how most social problems are judged educational problems and explaining that, though education is a state responsibility, there is considerable similarity across the 50 states. Both public and teacher education are strictly scrutinized and considered one source of today's presumed school failure. The paper discusses the development of academic standards for teacher educators and examines the poor teaching conditions in most states. (SM)
