Duncan calls for overhaul of education schools
Posted by Sylvia Hayes on Monday, October 26, 2009
The Obama administration is calling for an overhaul of college programs that prepare new teachers, saying they are cash cows that do a mediocre job of preparing teachers for the classroom. Among the changes proposed by Education Secretary Arne Duncan: overhauling education schools' curricula to ensure that future teachers learn how to use data to improve their instruction, and linking the performance of teachers with the schools where they received their training, so policy makers can see which schools are most effective.
Key words: educational technology, teacher preparation, Obama education, teacher training, Arne Duncan, teacher colleges
