Synopsis

This book is a critical examination of the practices, processes, and tactics of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the largest accreditor of teacher education programs in the country. Those who have concerns about how well teachers are prepared in our country need to become aware of this influential organization and its stranglehold on teacher preparation.
