Eye On Teacher Quality

In other words, a child has roughly a 15

percent chance of being assigned to a great

teacher in any given school year.”

(Walsh, 2007, p. 2)

slide6
What are the Contributing Factors?

Executive Summary: Key Findings

(State Teacher Policy Yearbook: Progress on Teacher Quality, 2007)

“States do not ensure that special education teachers

are well-prepared to teach students

with disabilities.”

slide7
What are the Contributing Factors?

Current pre- and in-service models cost millions of

dollars, but rarely include an accountability

measure linking teacher performance to student

outcomes (Teaching At Risk: A Call to Action, 2004).

slide8
What are Contributing Factors?

“Rather than acknowledging that they have real problems to confront, education schools have for the most part continued to do business as usual. Dismissing their critics as ideologues and know-nothings, too many have chosen to ignore not only their own shortcomings, but also the extraordinary changes in the nation and world that should have led education schools to reevaluate the ways in which they prepare educators” (Former President of Teachers College, Columbia University Arthur Levine).

slide9
Moving Toward Solutions:

Eight Questions on Teacher Preparation: What Does the

Research Say? A Summary of Findings (Education Commission of the

States)

Five Recommendations:

  • Design preparation programs based on the research.
  • Integrate innovative and emerging technologies.
  • Conduct rigorous performance-based research investigations.
  • Pioneer program partnerships with business and industry, professional organization, and state/federal policy makers.
  • Collaborate with colleges and schools outside the walls off education (i.e., Arts & Sciences, Business, Law).

Discussion Questions

  • What likely impediments face key project personnel endeavoring to incorporate emerging technologies that enhance leadership and personnel preparation programs?
  • What ethical and moral dilemmas emerge from use of virtual and/or online technologies in teacher education research and practice?
  • How can the technologies be best used to advance research in the fields of general and special education teacher and leadership personnel development programs?
final thought
Final Thought

“The effectiveness of any broader education reform –including standards, smaller schools, and choice – ultimately depends on the quality of teachers in the classroom” (Teaching at Risk: A Call to Action published by The Teaching Commission, 2004, p.15)
