They are all telling you how to educate your future teachers of science: Legislators are passing mandates; professional committees publish report after report; state bureaucrats are holding the line on regulations that have been around for years; the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is adopting new standards; and the guys down the hall have suddenly become experts on what you are doing to educate teachers. Too much! But, if you are a college science instructor involved with the preparation of science teachers for the K-12 schools, there are developments from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and NCATE that will be important to you. This may be the most important part of the reform movement.
