The coming revolution in teacher prep

Nearly a year ago, I began visiting organizations that represent a new idea in a terribly broken field: teacher training. The evidence is rife that we don’t do a good enough job at preparing teachers–according to the teachers themselves, their principals, and even their own ed school professors. And it’s hard to underestimate the impact that teachers have–how much good they do when they’re effective, and how much they harm kids when they enter the classroom unready.

The fruits of my research and interviews with some of the most promising innovators in the field are now up, in the winter issue of the Stanford Social Innovation Review. With apologies that it’s behind a pay wall, check it out.
