Educating Teachers

The Best Minds Speak Out

June 2002 by ACTA by George C. Leef

This publication offers a collection of articles that explores the current state of teacher training in this country and suggests alternatives to the status quo. It is the first of two publications by the Trustees for Better Teachers project, a multi-year initiative of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni aimed at improving teacher education in the United States. As stewards of their institutions, trustees are ideally placed to take a critical look at teacher training programs at their schools and press for reforms.
