Summary

In October 1986, the Tennessee State Board of Education adopted nine principles setting forth a framework for the design of an improved teacher education system in Tennessee and identifying major areas of responsibility for higher education institutions, local school systems, and the state. The principles include: (1) liberal arts preparation; (2) responsibility for designing programs of study for teachers; (3) professional education; (4) induction into the profession; (5) waivers and permits; (6) program approval; (7) assessment of teacher candidates; (8) local system evaluation of beginning teachers; and (9) research and inquiry to improve teaching, teacher education, and school leadership. The Advisory Council on Teacher Education and Certification was given the responsibility of recommending an improved teacher education system consistent with the nine principles. This paper assesses the current status of each of the nine principles and offers recommendations for continuing improvement. The document concludes with a summary of recommendations, additional issues to be addressed by the Advisory Council on Teacher Education and Certification, and a list of the Advisory Council members.
