Culling the Herd: Why Teacher Educators Need to Stand Their Ground


by Peshe C. Kuriloff — June 28, 2013

This article responds to the National Council on Teacher Quality’s newly released ranking of teacher education programs by arguing that teacher educators need to find their voice. As policy-makers continue to search for something to blame for low student achievement in urban schools, they have fixed first on teachers and now on teacher preparation. In response, teachers and educators need to stand their ground and demand a well-deserved seat at the table. To avoid becoming a victim in the education wars, teacher educators need to speak out about what they know and need to ensure that teachers succeed and schoolchildren learn and thrive.
