Teacher Education: Its Problems and Some Prospects
Sykes, Gary; Bird, Tom; Kennedy, Mary
Journal of Teacher Education, v61 n5 p464-476 Nov-Dec 2010
Based on an analysis of occupational competence in teaching and teacher education, this article draws together a set of dilemmas that face the field, arguing that an occupational analysis is needed to complement the more common institutional analysis of teacher education. Then, this analysis is used to evaluate the prospects of the reforms that currently are dominant in the policy discourse of teacher education. The article concludes with thoughts on some promising directions for the improvement of the field of teacher education. (Contains 11 notes.)
