Dr. Shahinoor AlamAbstract:
Education is a very important aspect for development of any nation and it depends on the quality of teachers. Creating such teachers is a major challenge for any governments across the globe today. Systematic and well planned Teacher education programmes are required today. Teacher education programme has to be studied, reformed, rethought and reoriented today. It’s a challenge for every country to provide well trained and effective teachers; it is an area of concern for degrading values and questions about purpose and goals of education for society; and it is a research problem involving educational questions, conditions, issues and concerns. In India, during the pursuit of this reforming and restructuring and in the light of various policy papers and documents like- Right to education act 2009, NCTE regulations 2009, National Knowledge Commission report, NCF (2005), Acharya Rammurti Samiti Report (1990), Kothari commission report (1964-66) etc., the Teacher education curriculum and regulations have witnessed a paradigm shift in recent years. Though some of the problems have also been there like updated curriculum, duration and quality of internship, in-service teacher education, lack of practical aspects and teacher education through distance mode are debatable issues. The paper reviews and discusses policy and regulatory changes or reforms in teacher education in India that have taken place in the last one decade, arguing that it is a highly contested ground in India that is closely attached with the way the academic networks and coalitions work in the field.
