At last! The leaders of 350 teacher education programs have issued a bold statement in collaboration with the National Education Policy Center denouncing attacks on teacher education and market-based “remedies” that lack a sound research basis, and in some instances have already proven to widen disparities. Following a discussion of these trends, we present our alternative vision for teacher-education reform. Open the link to read the statement in full. It is short and won’t take more than five minutes of reading time. It is very encouraging to see the leaders of teacher education stand up for professionalism and research-based practice, and to take a stand against quackery from group funded or heavily endowed by billionaire foundations to launch charter schools and promote education technology that marketize teacher education."
