Considering Teacher Empowerment: Why It Is Moral
Lucey, Thomas A.; Hill-Clarke, Kantaylieniere
Teacher Education and Practice, v21 n1 p47-62 Win 2008
Hierarchical educational structures employ a standards-driven decision-making atmosphere that challenges teachers' autonomy. This situation represents a critical issue for teacher educators who must consider how they will teach candidates to respond to these settings. We argue that teacher empowerment represents a moral issue that teacher educators must embrace, and we conclude with ideas for teaching candidates the needed skills for bringing about the required conversations.
