Priorities in the Education of Teachers

by Leander L. Boykin 1958

While recognizing the need for synthesis, evaluation, re-examination, and a clearer conceptualization in the whole field of teacher education, the writer notes that four priority areas need immediate redirection and increased emphasis if prospective teachers are to possess the competencies necessary to meet successfully the demands and challenges of the present and the future. These are: (1) education for effective participation in a democratic society and for instructing children in democratic living and citizenship; (2) a new orientation to current developments in child and adolescent growth and development, in curriculum, and in methods of teaching; (3) the role and significance of values in relation to the child; and (4) education for social-civic competence, particularly in the Southern states.
