Bigger Dreams in a Smaller World
Conoley, Jane Close
Teacher Education and Practice, v21 n4 p427-429 Fall 2008
To answer the editor's question "What are the major challenges faced by teacher education in an increasing global society?" many issues deserve notice. They may be summarized as building the will, the space, the capacity, and the evidence. The author starts with an assumption that, at least rhetorically, is not controversial. Teacher education programs must be globalized to prepare teachers to succeed with their students in the 21st century. The challenges of managing such a transformation, however, are daunting in a society that lauds local control of education.
