Priorities that Should Guide Teacher Education in a Democracy
Meadows, Elizabeth
Teacher Education and Practice, v22 n4 p461-463 Fall 2009
In this article, the author discusses five major priorities that should guide teacher education in preparing teachers for their work in a democratic society. These priorities are of equal importance in preparing teachers to enter schools and do the work necessary to sustain a democratic society. They require purposeful planning and enactment of ideas and practices. Teacher educators therefore need to model and directly teach preservice teachers how to embody all five priorities.
