JTE Call for Manuscripts: School-Based Teacher Learning

The editors of AACTE’s Journal of Teacher Education invite manuscripts for a special issue on school-based teacher learning. Manuscripts are due November 1, and the issue will be published next year as Volume 66, Number 4 (September/October 2015).

Now they are overabundant, often difficult to decipher, or of unreliable quality. In this new environment, we must prepare teachers and other education leaders to be not only data literate, but also advocates for effective data use by others.
