preparing teachers

Posted By: Grace Stanford on January 10, 2001
I agree with the qualifications for prospective teachers you listed. However, the qualifications do not apply to many of the students currently enrolled in teacher education. Yet,we,as teacher educators,have a responsibility to prepare the students we have to successfully teach all students. Since most of our students are from suburban schools, few have any understanding of the structural inequities that limit the educational opportunities for most urban learners. Such an understanding is essential for helping prospective teachers find ways to overcome those barriers, to the extent possible, rather than view them as insumountable.
