A Snapshot of States' Teacher Education and Training Programs
Kiker, Jason; Emeagwali, N. Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n1 p22-25 Jan 2010
States are doing much to bolster teacher education, training and professional development in recognition that challenges exist in the sustenance of a pipeline of qualified educators in all areas, including career and technical education (CTE). A recent brief, "Teacher Shortage Undermines CTE," by the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium noted that the key factors contributing to the teacher shortage in CTE are an increase in demand for more classes; the elimination of teacher education programs; and the growing number of retirements. As states work to address these shortages, they are employing a number of strategies to attract and keep educators in the classroom. This article presents snapshots of what some states are doing to improve and enhance teacher education and training. The information is taken from official state profiles developed by the Association for Career and Technical Education. (Contains 1 figure.)
