Foundations of Education Change
I would like to voice my support for keeping the term "Foundations of Education" in our VA teacher prep standards. I appreciate that the proposed change would still require that future teachers receive instruction in the sociology, philosophy, and history of education, but the current proposal alters the ethical and social justice element that has been so instrumental to future teachers' professional development. To lose that would be to further create economic, cultural, and social divides across our society, which is counter to our democracy and the purposes of our public education.
