Why Don't I Feel Better About Teacher Education After Reading This Article?

Posted By: Dick Schutz on March 18, 2011
 
You say, "In this commentary, we describe a statewide initiative organized to systematically evaluate our state’s five public, traditional teacher education programs. . ."

No you don't. You describe three ground-rule decisions that were consensually arrived at prior to conducting the evaluation.

You say, the study will ". . .assess whether our graduates are impacting student learning in positive and sustained ways."

That's a major undertaking and would represent a major contribution to the profession and the public. In the absence of any information about the methodology or the time frame, it may just be me, but I'm skeptical.
