Overhauling Teacher Education: Can It Be Done?
Quality education depends on quality teaching. Today, arts specialists face more demanding conditions: a transcultural curriculum, increasing competition from other academic areas for finite school time and limited resources, and skepticism about the educational value of the arts among some educators, administrators, school-board members, and parents. If they are going to serve as cultural coordinators, organize comprehensive programs, incorporate community arts resources, apply the potential of today's technology, develop curricula to meet new graduation requirements, supervise arts programs taught by classroom teachers, and provide teachers with instruction and direct advocacy efforts to win broader support, these new and expanded responsibilities will require extensive changes in their preservice education. Like every other subject in the public school curriculum, the demands of teaching and learning in the arts are growing.
