Diversity: Preparing for Diversity

NCATE and Diversity

Focus on diversity

"Rapidly growing diversity in America’s classrooms will mean that almost 50 percent of schoolchildren will be from widely divergent backgrounds by the early 21st century. Preparing teachers who are ready to teach all students is a part of NCATE’s expectations." (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education  . (2005). NCATE: Making a Difference. ERIC Document: ED495469  4 pp.)

"Standard 4: Diversity expects that the unit designs, implements and evaluates curriculum and experiences for candidates to acquire and apply knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to help all students learn. It includes the expectation that candidates have the opportunity to interact with candidates, faculty, and P–12 students from diverse groups." (FAQ About Standards)
