What Do Graduates Say about Multicultural Teacher Education?
Colon-Muniz, Anaida; Brady, John; SooHoo, Suzanne
Issues in Teacher Education, v19 n1 p85-108 Spr 2010
The former president of Teachers College, Columbia University, Arthur Levine questioned the connection between what one learns in pre-service teacher education programs and what one does as a teacher. From a meta-analysis of several studies he found that: A shockingly low percentage of principals said that their teachers were very or moderately well prepared to meet the needs of students from diverse cultural backgrounds (28 percent); to work with parents (21 percent); and to help students with limited English proficiency (16 percent.) The authors have been concerned about the education of diverse student populations in California that is why they conducted this study. Through this study, the authors wanted to assess the impact that their teacher preparation course on multicultural education has had on teachers' self-perceptions and practices as multicultural educators.
