NCATE and the Restructuring of Teacher Educators' Work: A Labor Process Perspective

Place of Publication
The assessment and accountability movements in education, and the accreditation of teacher education movement that has built on them, are ostensibly meant to contribute to the reform teacher education, so as to better prepare preservice teachers to meet the demanding standards in P-12 schools. Educational reform has come to mean, however, restructuring the work of teachers and teacher educators. This chapter explores that restructuring in the context of economic and political forces that are contributing to it, by reviewing the changing, developing relationship of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) to IPFW's School of Education.
