Teaching for a Practical Change: Rethinking preparation of Teachers
Teachers’ is a “learner’s learner” who will always have critics regardless of their passion for teaching. The apathy among educators and administrators between policy makers, pundits, businesses and parents are arguably part of the reason why our educational system is a “Nation at Risk.” Educators have agreed that one of the challenges is the lack of preparation programs for teachers, and are placed in a precariously systemically failing schools. Some policy makers with their quasi reformation bills at Congress are repeatedly contemplating an emergence of intelligence, (i.e., technology) and try to articulate the implementation idea throughout the U.S schools again; another new pseudo reform for the 21st century. Our technology savvy society is convinced and tirelessly tries to persuade educators that they have world class achievement levels; of technical know how, of mastery of the new technologies that would improve our nation’s educational system.
