On any list of problems in American education, the way we prepare teachers is invariably accorded a high place. That the weaknesses attributed to this enterprise are numerous and varied was demonstrated this year in a series of special reports in Education Week, "Teaching Our Teachers" (Dec. 12, 1990; Feb. 13, 1991; March 13, 1991; March 27, 1991). But while teacher education is in need of substantial improvement, teacher educators, on the whole, have been moving to respond to their critics and significant changes are taking place.
FOUNDATION SUPPORT: Coverage of specific topics in Education Week is supported in part by grants from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the CME Group Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the Noyce Foundation, the Raikes Foundation, the Wallace Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation. The newspaper retains sole editorial control over the content of the articles that are underwritten by the foundations. Additional grants in support of Editorial Projects in Education’s data journalism and video capacity come from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and the Schott Foundation for Public Education. (Updated 1/1/2017)
