Abstract

In an age of consumer choice, decentralization, and deregulation in education, policymakers often demonstrate surprisingly little awareness of how popular reforms impact teaching and teacher education. This raises a number of questions: To what extent has the push for privatization and marketization of education shaped how we recruit and train the next generation of teachers? What are they taught and why? How do such policies impact the dispositions of colleges of education and alternative teacher certification organizations? In this book, well-regarded scholars help readers develop a more robust understanding of the nature of teacher preparation, as well as an in-depth grasp of how these policies, practices, and ideologies have taken root domestically and internationally.
