Have conceptual reforms (and one anti-reform) in preservice teacher education improved the education of multicultural, multilingual children and youth?
The article examines three conceptual reforms in US education and their effects on the education of multicultural and multilingual youth. The article also considers alternative certification programs. According to the author, although each reform improved preservice teachers' preparation to teach multilingual learners, none actually changed the education of under-served youth. The author inks the field's focus on the preparation of teachers for diverse students and the moral dimension of teacher education, concluding that such a connection may be the only way to maintain the professional school preparation of teachers.
