Zeichner, Ken
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n8 p1544-1552 Nov 2010
This paper discusses recent developments in U.S. teacher education that are tied to the global neo-liberal project. The focus is on how changes experienced throughout the world have played out in the U.S. Three areas are addressed in particular: the commodification of teacher education, hyperrationality and increased accountability, and attacks on multicultural education. The paper closes with a look at the future for teacher education in the U.S.
