Teacher Education and Teacher Quality

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Education is one sector that fosters national development by ensuring the growth of a functional human capital. A society with strong educational structures will be populated by educated people who can lead to positive economic progress and social change. People apply the skills they have learned in school to achieve positive social change and economic growth. These skills are made possible by one person we all call ‘teacher’. This is why nations that seek economic and social development should not overlook teachers and their importance in national development.

Students’ learning success is largely determined by their teachers. Teachers’ performance is a major factor in determining the quality and performance of students they teach. Teachers should receive the highest education possible to be able to help students in the most effective ways. The quality of teaching and teachers is a key factor in shaping the learning of students and their academic growth. Teachers who receive high-quality training will be able to manage classrooms effectively and facilitate learning. Even in countries with high student scores on international exams such as Trends In Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), teacher quality remains a concern. Teacher education is of paramount importance in these countries due to the potential it has for positive student achievements.

In almost every country, the structure of teacher education is changing to meet the needs of teachers or the demands of students. These changes are intended to ensure high quality teachers and to make sure that teachers do not leave the classroom. The U.S.A. has struggled to find ways to encourage high-quality teachers for over a decade. This has been mainly due to the No Child Left Behind Act (Accomplished California Teachers 2015). Even though there are many teachers in Japan and other Eastern nations, structures have been established to ensure that high-quality teachers are hired and produced (Ogawa Fujii & Ikuo 2013, 2013). Teachers education is not a joke. This article is divided into two parts. The first part discusses Ghana’s teacher-education system. The second part examines some determinants for quality teaching.

2.0 TEACHER EDUCATATION

Ghana has made deliberate efforts to train quality teachers in her elementary school classrooms. Benneh (2006) stated that Ghana’s goal in teacher education is to offer a comprehensive teacher education program that includes in-service and initial teacher training. This will ensure that competent teachers are trained and qualified, which will improve the quality of teaching and learning in schools. The initial teacher education program for Ghana’s basic teachers was only offered by Colleges of Education (CoE), until recently when University of Education, University of Cape Coast and Central University College joined the ranks. One of the most striking differences between programs offered by other tertiary institutions is that, while Universities examine and award certificates to students, the Colleges of Education offer tuition, while the University of Cape Coast through the Institute of Education examines and awards certificates. These institutions offer training programs to help teachers become qualified for teaching in schools. To ensure quality, the National Accreditation Board approves teacher training programs.

The National Accreditation Board approves teacher education programs on the basis of the content and structure of the courses offered by each institution. The content and structure of courses offered by different institutions can vary. The course content at the Institute of Education, University of Cape Coast may be slightly different than the content and structure of the Center for Continue Education University of Cape Coast. However, all three programs award the Diploma in Basic Education (DBE), after three years of training. The DBE and the Four year Untrained Teacher Diploma in Basic Education (UTDBE), programs run by the CoEs, are similar but not identical. Similar results can be made for the two-year Post-Diploma Basic Education and four-year Bachelor’s degree programs at the University of Cape Coast, Winneba, and other Universities and University Colleges. Even though the same products may attract the same clients, the way the products are prepared is different.

These programs prepare teachers for teaching in the elementary schools, from kindergarten to senior high schools. In situations of teacher shortages, alternative pathways or programs that prepare teachers can be useful. The UTDBE program is a typical example. It is designed to provide non-professional teachers professional skills. This attempt to produce more teachers due to a shortage of teachers has the tendency to compromise quality.

Stone (2010), Xiaoxia and Heeju, Nicci, and Stone (2010) all noted that there are many factors that can contribute to teacher retention and teacher education. However, one thing teacher educators are concerned with is the alternative routes that teacher education may take. Many of these pathways are designed to quickly get teachers into teaching. These pathways have cut out the teacher preparation required for prospective teachers before they can become classroom teachers. Those who prefer alternative routes like Teach For America (TFA) have defended their alternatives by saying that, even though students are only engaged for a short time of pre-service training they are academically brilliant and have the ability to learn a lot in a very short time. Some argue that there should be an intentional opening of pathways to qualified candidates in areas like English, Science, and Mathematics, where there is often a shortage of teachers. These arguments are not in favor of alternative routes. I will be referring to the alternative teacher education program in Ghana where brilliant academic students avoid teaching.

If the goal is to fill empty classrooms, quality teacher preparation gets pushed to the sidelines. The alternative routes make it easier to gain entry into teacher education programs right at the selection stage. For example, when the second UTDBE student batch was admitted, I could confirm that the entry requirements to the CoEs had not been met. It was stressed that applicants must not be professional basic school teachers and have been employed by Ghana Education Service. It didn’t matter what grades were obtained. The CoEs wouldn’t have been able to train students who were initially not eligible for the DBE program. It leaves behind the negative effect of compromising quality.

I discovered, recently, that CoEs, in particular, do not attract candidates with high grades, even with regular DBE programs. This has a significant impact on teacher quality and teacher effectiveness, as I’ve learned. Teacher education programs in Ghana don’t have the prestige that is expected, so those with good grades aren’t encouraged to apply. The majority of applicants for teacher education programs are from lower grades. The entry requirements for the 2016/2017 CoEs DBE program were published. I noticed that the minimum entry grades for West African Senior Secondary School Examination candidates had been reduced from C6 to D8. CoEs attempted to attract more applicants could explain this drop in standard. To attract more applicants, universities also lower the cut-off point for their education programs. According to Levine (2006), universities see teacher education programs as money cows. To increase enrollments, their desire to make more money forces them to lower admission standards like the CoEs. In order to increase enrollments, international admission standards are lowered. The weakening of recruitment practices or the lowering standards pose a serious threat to teacher education.

Japanese teachers have made teaching and teacher education prestigious, attracting students with high grades. You could argue that Japan’s teacher supply is far greater than the demand, so there is no pressure on the authorities to hire teachers. They can still select students of higher grades into teacher education programs. This will not cause any harm to their system. They believe that issues related to teacher selection are more important than issues related to recruitment. The issues related to recruitment are important in both western and African countries. Because the demand for teachers is far greater than the supply, this is true. Teachers are not highly valued in the West and Africa. Students with very high grades are not attracted to teacher education programs. It is important to note that it is not just the recruitment process that decides whether teacher education will be highly regarded. However, high-quality candidates will ensure that teachers are able to demonstrate the qualities necessary for effective teaching. If the teaching profession is highly regarded and able to attract top-quality applicants, teacher education can be successful. Teacher education programs will not succeed if there are no incentives to attract qualified applicants or measures to improve teacher education.

Teacher preparation programs are needed to support teacher preparation. They should provide excellent teacher training and continue to support teachers for the first few years of their employment. Lumpe (2007) supports pre-service teacher education programs that ensure effective teaching strategies are understood by teachers. Effective teaching strategies should be the focus of methodology classes. No matter what the route taken, it is important that the training program be structured so that trainees are able to learn about pedagogy and the subject matter. The trainees should have enough classroom experience, including both on-campus and off campus teaching. No matter whether there is a need to fill teacher vacancies due to high teacher attrition in many countries, teacher preparation programs must aim to produce effective teachers and not just fill vacancies.

3.0 DETERMINANTS FOR TEACHER QUALITY

The quality of teachers has a huge impact on student learning. Anybody who has worked in education will tell you that teacher quality is a key component of reform efforts. Priagula Agam & Solmon (2007) identified teacher quality as an important factor in schools that has a significant impact on students’ learning. Students’ success is influenced by the quality of teachers. Students learn better when they have effective and qualified teachers. Students who have ineffective teachers experience learning declines. Teacher quality refers to continuous self-assessment to improve teaching and professional development. A teacher educator who is able to build on his/her subject-matter knowledge and pedagogy knowledge is a quality teacher.

Exemplary qualities are exhibited by outstanding teachers. They are able to teach every child with the right skills and knowledge. They provide their students with the knowledge and awareness necessary to be able to make independent and sound judgments. Here are three factors that determine teacher quality. These are pedagogical and subject-matter knowledge as well as experience.

A Brief History of Special Education

The relationship between special education and general education is perhaps the most important issue in special education. It has been a major concern in my journey as an educator. This relationship has not been easy to establish between them, as history has shown. It has been a lot more than I would like to say, pulling and pushing, when it comes down to educational policy and the educational practices and special education services provided by human educators on both sides.

Over the past 20 years, I have worked on both sides. I’ve experienced what it was like for a regular teacher to deal with special education students, their teachers and policy. I also worked on the special education side, trying to get regular educators to be more effective with my special education students by adapting their instruction and materials and showing more empathy and patience.

Additionally, I was a regular education teacher and taught regular education inclusion classes. This allowed me to learn how to work best with a new special education teacher in my classroom and their special education students. In contrast, I was a special education inclusion teacher who intruded on the territory and made suggestions for modifications that regular education teachers should make. It has not been easy to manage the special education and regular education give-and-take. This pushing and pulling is not something I can see becoming an easy task anytime soon.

What is special education? What makes special education so unique and complex? Special education is, as the name implies, a special branch of education. It is a specialized branch of education that can be traced back to Jean-Marc-Gaspard Itard (1775-1838), who was the physician who “tamed the wild boy of Aveyron,” as well as Anne Sullivan Macy (1866-1936), who was the teacher who “worked wonders” with Helen Keller.

Students with special needs are taught by special educators. Special educators offer instruction that is tailored to each student’s individual needs. This is how special educators make education more accessible and available to students with disabilities.

However, it’s not only teachers who have played a part in the history and development of special education in this nation. Itard- and other clergy members, such as Edouard O. Seguin (1812-1880), Samuel Gridley Howe (1801-1876) and Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet (1887-1851), all wanted to improve the often neglectful and abusive treatment of persons with disabilities. Unfortunately, the education system in this country was often very abusive and neglectful when it came to students who were different.

Our nation has a wealth of literature that describes how individuals with disabilities were treated in the 1800s and the early 1900s. These stories and the real world show that the disabled population was often kept in prisons and almshouses, without adequate food, clothing, or exercise.

This is illustrated by Tiny Tim, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (1843). People with disabilities were also often depicted as villains in many cases, as was the case in Captain Hook, J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan”, 1911.

According to the authors, this was the dominant view at that time. One should accept misfortunes as a sign of obedience to God and because they are ultimately for one’s good. This way of thinking was permeating society, literature, and thinking made it difficult to make progress for people with disabilities.

What was society to do with these unfortunate people? During the 19th century and the early 20th centuries, experts believed that individuals with disabilities should be treated in rural settings. It’s a kind of out-of-sight, out of mind thing.

But, the number of institutions had exploded so much that rehabilitation for persons with disabilities was no longer possible. Institutions were used to create permanent segregation.

These segregation policies in education have been something I’ve experienced. Some of it can be good, some not so much. I’ve been a self-contained teacher for many years. This includes self-contained classrooms at public middle schools, high schools, and elementary schools. I also taught in special education behavioral self-contained schools, which completely separated troubled students with disabilities from mainstream peers. They were placed in buildings in entirely different locations from their homes, friends, and peers.

Many special education professionals have become critical of the institutions that segregated and separated our disabled children from their peers over time. Irvine Howe was the first person to advocate for removing our youth from these large institutions and placing them in families. This practice was a problem both logistically and pragmatically. It took a while before it became an option to institutionalization for students with disabilities.

On the plus side, you may be interested to know that Gallaudet established the American Asylum for the Education and Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb in Hartford, Connecticut in 1817. It is still in operation today and is a top school for students with hearing impairments. This is a true success story!

As you can see, the American School for the Deaf’s long-lasting success was not the norm during that time. To make matters worse, environmentalism was replaced by social Darwinism in the late nineteenth century as the primary cause of disabilities that were different from the general population.

Unfortunately, Darwinism was the catalyst for the eugenics movement in the early 20th century. This led to further segregation, and even sterilization of people with disabilities like mental retardation. It sounds like Hitler did it in Germany, but this is happening right here, in our country, to our people by our people. You wouldn’t find this inhumane and scary.

This type of treatment is unacceptable today. In the early 20th century, this was unacceptable to many adults, particularly the parents of disabled children. Parents became angry and formed advocacy groups to bring attention to the education needs of disabled children. If this was to stop, the public needed to witness firsthand how harmful this sterilization and eugenics movement was for students who were different.

Slowly, grassroots groups made progress that led to some states enacting laws to protect citizens with disabilities. In 1930, Peoria, Illinois had its first white cane ordinance. This gave blind individuals the right of way when crossing the street. It was a beginning, and many other states followed suit. Eventually, the pressure from both the local grassroots and state movements led to enough pressure on our elected representatives to make sure that something was done at the national level for people with disabilities.

John F. Kennedy established the President’s Panel on Mental Retardation in 1961. Advocate groups consider Lyndon B. Johnson’s 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act to be an expansion of public education for children with disabilities. It provided funding for primary education and was signed by Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965.

It’s not surprising, if one considers Kennedy’s and Johnsons civil rights record, that these two presidents also led this national movement for people with disabilities.

This federal movement resulted in section 504 being added to the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. This section guarantees civil rights to the disabled when federally funded institutions are involved or any program or activity that receives Federal financial assistance. As an educator, I have dealt with 504 cases almost every day for the past 40 years.

1975 Congress passed Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. This law establishes a right for all children to receive public education regardless of their disability. This was another positive thing, as parents used to have to educate their children at home or to pay for private school.

This movement continued to grow. The U.S. Supreme Court clarified the extent of special education services that students with disabilities should receive in the 1982 case of the Board of Education of the Hendrick Hudson Central Schools District v. Rowley. The Court ruled special education services could only be of some educational benefit to students. Public schools did not have to help students with disabilities achieve their educational goals.

Although this ruling might not appear like a victory today, the same question is still circulating through our courts in 2017 with the exact same question. It was, however, a victory given the time it was made. This ruling said that special education students cannot pass through our school system and not learn anything. They had to learn something. Knowing and understanding how laws work in this country will help you to understand that the laws move through small incremental steps that add up over time. Special education students won because this ruling added another rung to the crusade.

The Regular Education Initiative (REI), was established in the 1980s. This was an attempt at returning responsibility for the education students with disabilities to their local schools and regular teachers. Regular Education Initiative is something I’m familiar with because I was an REI teacher for four years in the late 1990s/early 2000s. At that time, I was both a regular and special education teacher. I was also working as an REI teacher in a dual role.

Our special education students saw significant growth in the 1990s. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was created in 1990. This was and still is the foundation of free and appropriate public education for all students. The law required that every student who received special education services be provided with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in order to ensure FAPE.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 90 extended beyond public schools. Title 3 of IDEA prohibits discrimination based on disability in public accommodation. It was expected that everyone would enjoy the same rights and privileges as others when they used public facilities, goods, services, or accommodations. Public accommodations included, of course, most educational institutions.

In the 1990s, full inclusion gained momentum. This meant that all students with disabilities should be educated in the regular classroom. This aspect of education is also something I’m familiar with, having been both a regular and special education teacher.

Let’s now turn to President Bush and his education reform, with his No Child Left Behind law. This replaced President Johnson’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The 2001 NCLB Act stated that special education should not be confined to producing results. This was accompanied by a sharp increase of accountability for teachers.

Ten Reasons to Start an Online Business

The internet has many advantages, whether you’re looking to change your lifestyle or improve your job.

Why an Internet Business?

1 Flexibility

People often find their way to an online business by accident rather than through deliberate creation. For me, I needed flexibility and a job that could be adapted to my schedule. Although it didn’t happen often, I was determined to accept the job when it did. This caused all sorts of problems. Normal work was not as lucrative and my employers wouldn’t allow me to take large amounts of time off for other work.

Over the years, I tried to juggle several jobs but it didn’t work out. Around the same time, I tried to use ebay to sell and buy a little extra income. Affiliate marketing was something I discovered later. Affiliate marketing is a form of referral selling. Your website will point other people’s products and services to your link. You are paid a commission for each sale made through the link.

Once you are familiar with this, you can create links from your online content to other peoples’ products and services. Paid advertising can be used to reach people around the globe. This worked well for me because I could bring my laptop with me anywhere I went and I was able to work as long as there was an internet connection. It didn’t affect my work and I didn’t have to answer to anyone.

2.freedom

There are many other reasons I decided to start an online business. My main concern was the flexibility of my business. I wanted the freedom to set my own hours and be able take on work whenever it came. The other reason I chose this model was my ability to leverage technology to increase my income and time.

Once my website was up and running, I was able sell products and make sales without ever being present. This is what online businesses are all about. An online business allows you to do all the work once and have it run in the background. It is possible to make sales and deliver products repeatedly using the same advert or content. This can be done via a virtual autopilot that runs 24 hours a days, 7 days a semaine, and 365 days per year.

Every piece of content that you create can be used to send people to landing pages and sell products. You can create multiple pieces of content online and share them all. This will allow you to build multiple streams of income that can be run continuously, acting as your own automated sales team.

3: Ability to Scale

You can scale your business with this incredible automation. Multiple sales can be made instantly through the same platform because there is no human intervention in’sales loop. Paid advertising is scalable and can be scaled over time. Your sales will grow as your content is shared more and more people visit your website. Paid advertising can be scaled easily by increasing your daily spending.

An online business can be automated, making it easy to scale. This can lead to more employees, sales tools, office space, and more hassle for a physical business. Everything is pre-built for an online business. All you have to do is send more customers via automated sales systems using content and/or advertising methods.

4: Low Startup Costs

I was able to start an online business from scratch. I didn’t require a large loan, and I was able to work at a level that fit my budget. It is extremely cost-effective to start an internet business. Paid advertising can help you grow your business faster if you have more money. If you have a limited budget, like I did when I started my business, it is possible to get started quickly and inexpensively.

There are many overheads that you need to think about when running a bricks and mortar business. You will need to pay for a business location, staff, stock, and hardware. Advertising and delivery are additional costs. An internet connection and a laptop are all you need to start an online business. This is something that many people already have. The main expense is learning the best strategies to build upon and getting the right education.

5 – Simplicity

It is now much easier than ever to create your own website. You can also learn how to use simple online platforms that connect people with products and services. Anyone can now create and advertise. It takes just a few clicks to create a website and anyone can learn how to market online using the tools and strategies offered by online marketers.

Website building used to be the domain of tech-savvy programmers. Now anyone can create websites using simple platforms and programs. Although it sounds like something that would be best suited for technical people, anyone can learn how to create an online business.

6 Control

You have control over your own life with an internet business. It takes time to grow your internet business to the point where it can replace your income. You can still work around your current employment to make it a viable internet business.
You can take control of your own life once your income exceeds that of your job. You don’t need to commute every day or endure a difficult work environment. If you don’t like your job you can quit. Don’t like your boss? Fire him/her!
An internet-based business gives you control over your own life. Your lifestyle can be your business model, and you can build it around that. People are often forced to place work first in all they do. Work is the foundation of family time, hobbies, and holidays. You can make the most of your time by starting an internet business. You can take control of your life by having an internet business.

7: Work from Anywhere

An internet business offers flexibility in terms work hours and allows you to work remotely from anywhere. This is a great option for many people who are otherwise more restricted by traditional work at a localized office.
It was freedom to work when I wanted and not be supervised. Many people consider the best thing about owning an online business to be the ability to travel around the world.
You can take your laptop with you wherever there is an internet connection. Use it to work abroad or while on the road.

8 – Learn Life Skills

My skills gained from my internet business make me more employable. I was also able to work for an internet-based company using the skills that I had learned via my laptop from home.

It is very valuable in business to be able reach people worldwide and target certain types of people. I also used the online knowledge to help me build a physical business faster using my website building skills as well as paid advertising.

Anyone can use the internet to learn new skills, improve their abilities and create another source of income. You can use the skills you have learned for your entire life, regardless of whether or not it is your intention to start an online business.

9 – Independence

While we may think that we are independent, many of us are dependent on our jobs for our income. Our employers tell us what we can earn, how many holidays we can take, and what we will do while we are at work. Financial freedom is the ultimate freedom.

Financial independence allows us to take holidays whenever we want and can work when we choose. Online business allows you to be autonomous and live your life according to your own schedule, with no employer in your life.

10 – Sovereignty

Ownership gives you control. Many entrepreneurs dream of being able to make decisions in their business. Your actions will determine the success or failure of your business.

Five Tips for Adventure Travel with Small Groups

You are thinking about a new vocation. Are you considering an adventure travel trip instead of the traditional resort-style vocation? Many people today prefer an active and adventurous type of travel. Adventure travel with a small group is the best way for a safe adventure.

Travelling with small groups is a rapidly growing industry. A small group of people can have many benefits from a career in guided adventure travel.

You can receive more attention from your tour guide
There are many small-group adventures that can be done in remote and less touristy destinations.
If the group is small, the tour can be customized to meet your requirements.
A small group can often be more affordable than a traditional tour because there are only a few people who need accommodation. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a large hotel.
Tours are more informal and allow you to explore the area on your own, but with the safety of a guide in case you need assistance

These tips will allow you to get the best out of your vocation

1. Choose the type of adventure you want. The term adventure vocation can be broadened to include exploring Alaska’s wilderness or the Amazon jungles, or a guided tour of Paris or Sydney. You don’t have to be in top physical condition for all adventures. You may need to be physically fit for some tours. However, you can still enjoy many interesting and thrilling things while hiking. You should know in advance how challenging your tour will be.

2. Are you looking to see one country in detail or many? Although it may sound absurd, this question is crucial. You can’t expect to visit many places or spend long periods of time in each one. Most adventure vocation tours last 7-14 days. You might become overwhelmed and exhausted by the sheer number of things you see.

3. Do you want a family adventure? Or do you prefer to travel with only adult friends? Many companies offer family-friendly adventure tours as part of the growing popularity of adventurous travel. These tours are often light and include many activities that will interest children. If you are planning to travel with children, look for family adventures. If you do not want children in your group, ask your agent if they can arrange for families with children to join this tour.

4. It will be worth your time to research and compare adventure travel companies. This will help you save a lot of time and money. You can read the reviews of others who have taken the same tour as you if you do your research online. Many travel companies post testimonials online. You can search for adventure forums where real people share their experiences.

5. Traveling in small groups is an adventure that doesn’t need to cost a lot. You can search the internet to find the tour that fits your budget. The best is not always the most expensive in the travel industry. Compare the activities offered and what type of accommodation is provided. You can find amazing adventure tours at affordable prices.
