Focuses on the content, technology, and skills teachers must master to prepare students to compete in today's global economy.

The National Congress on Teacher Education focuses on ways to recruit, prepare, license, and support a teacher workforce for the information age. This book compiles the deliberations and results of the latest conference, and examines: * Changes in policy, practice, and research that will help teachers meet the needs of all students striving to reach high standards * Partnerships among educators to better acquire and utilize the resources needed to effect these changes This series of provocative discussions and responses should be required reading for teachers, administrators, and all stakeholders in the future of American education and in America's real future: our children.
