This author believes it is rare to find a teacher education program that can produce teachers capable of responding to the needs of our society. Yet that is the challenge to teacher education if our goal is to prepare competent teachers. The author points out that it is possible to develop comprehensive programs to meet this challenge and describes recent efforts to identify the components of extended programs of teacher education. Dale Scannell is Dean of the School of Education at the University of Kansas and is currently a member of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards Committee, and the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) Task Force on Extended Programs.
