Introduction-Persisting Issues and New Solutions

Article excerpt

Dear TEQ readers,

This will be my final issue as Editor of Teacher Education Quarterly. This issue, like all TEQ issues before this one, addresses persistent concerns in teacher education. Scholars who publish in Teacher Education Quarterly are at the forefront of change and innovation in teacher education; change and innovation brought about through careful research design and attention to local contexts by caring teacher education scholars, not as a result of outside influences, which tend to view teachers and teacher education with disdain and of pressures by non-teacher educators or people who have never taught in classroom to reform teacher education through privatization efforts.

And although there were some difficulties to overcome in the first few months, the system has been operative effectively and will continue to develop as the journal moves forward. Also to be thanked profusely are TEQ reviewers. The journal maintains an extensive review system, where reviewers are asked to provide feedback and comments on between 3-to-4 manuscripts a year. The journal depends on good reviewers, and I am very grateful to the reviewers who have given their time and feedback on manuscripts. Reviewing is considered a thankless job, but on behalf of the journal, editorial team and editorial board, I thank you for your thoughtful service.

I also want to thank and acknowledge my Editorial Team and Editorial Board: Associate Editors Kip Tellez, Sharon Chappell, and Reynaldo Reyes--a heartfelt thanks. I called on these wonderful people to help me with decisions and the direction of the journal. Editorial Board members are critical for maintaining the quality and direction of the board. Many thanks for your contribution and support during my time as Editor, and for attending early morning editorial board meetings.

I am pleased to say that Professor Kip Tellez of the University of California, Santa Cruz, takes over as incoming Editor of Teacher Education Quarterly, beginning January 1, 2014, for the next several years. …
