Educating Teachers

The Best Minds Speak Out
June 1, 2002 by George C. Leef Download PDF Press Release

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.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
