Future of Teacher Education

grantDr. Carl Grant, KDP Laureate and Professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison, responds to Dr. Ken Zeichner & Dr. Hillary Conklin’s recent blog on the Washington Post, saying:

“Ken Zeichner and Hilary G. Conklin’s forthcoming article in the Teachers College Record, “Beyond Knowledge Ventriloquism and Echo Chambers: Raising the Quality of the Debate on Teacher Education,” is essential reading for all concerned with U.S. education and especially those who are involved with teaching and teacher education. Previewing the article, Zeichner and Conklin’s blog post, “The misuse of research to support deregulation and privatization of teacher education” (V. Strauss, The Washington Post, 9/2/15), analyzes how research has been misused in debates about the future of teacher education in the United States and offers several specific suggestions for improving the quality of this debate.”
