4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph examines issues that will shape teacher education programs in the future. Following a foreword by Robert M. McClure, the monograph is organized into three chapters. The first, "Perestroika and Professionalism: The Case for Restructuring Teacher Preparation" (Linda Darling-Hammond), focuses on changes wrought by school restructuring, I.E., the creation of learner-centered schools, and implications for changes in the teacher's role and consequently for teacher education. The second, "Learning from the 'New' Schools: Lessons for Teacher Education" (Gary A. Griffin), discusses school-level issues in restructuring, rethinking, and re-enacting teacher education. The final chapter, "The Case for Restructuring Teacher Preparation" (Arthur E. Wise), espouses seven propositions to promote education reform: (1) intensive teacher education; (2) rigorous teacher certification and licensing standards; (3) increased teacher involvement in decision-making processes that affect how they teach; (4) teacher unions with a better balance between inherent responsibilities to protect members and long-term responsibility for advancing the profession; (5) teacher professionalism that demands an accountability system; (6) improved teachers' salaries and working conditions; and (7) more attention to the less fortunate of teachers' clientele.

This report is an attempt to classify and interpret the new pieces of state legislation influencing the teaching occupation: how teachers are trained, licensed, inducted, and compensated. The historical basis of recent teacher reforms and the concepts of teaching that these new policies embody are analyzed. Examined are trends in state teacher policies governing certification and compensation implemented between 1978 and 1986. Analysis was based on interviews with state officials, examinations of policy documents, and reports of state policy actions compiled by a variety of education organizations. The report is compiled into three divisions: (1) recent trends in teacher certification; (2) recent trends in teacher compensation; and (3) teacher policy in review. Sixty references are included.

Beyond the commission reports : the coming crisis in teaching by Linda Darling-Hammond( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of data on teachers indicates coming changes in recruitment and retention of the American teaching force, in the quality of teachers, and in the attractiveness of teaching as a profession. New recruits to teaching are less academically qualified than those who are leaving, and shortages of qualified teachers in subjects such as mathematics and science are expected to grow into a more generalized teacher shortage. Teachers' salaries fall far below those of other professions. Lack of input into professional decision making, overly restrictive bureaucratic controls, and inadequate administrative supports for teaching contribute to teacher dissatisfaction and attrition, particularly among the most highly qualified members of the teaching force. Professionalizing teaching will require a new career structure in which improved preparation and professionally enforced standards of practice are combined with increased responsibility for technical decision making by competent teachers. Upgrading teacher compensation and creating more professional working conditions are part of a structural solution, one that addresses the interrelated causes of the teacher supply and quality problems, rather than merely their symptoms.

"Teachers are the most important single element of the education system but what does it take to create high quality teachers in today's world? Around the world, countries are struggling to understand how to change their schools to meet global demands. International comparisons have shown that schools in Finland lead the league tables, but why is this, what new policies and practices in teacher education have they developed and how do they support the changes? A number of European and Asian countries also top the list when it comes to providing high quality teacher education, but there is little information about what and how they are doing the work and how they have made changes.
