Preparing Teachers Around the World - This study compares teacher education and certification policies in the United States with those in Australia, England, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands and Singapore. The authors found that while the structure and content of undergraduate teacher education programs are similar, screening criteria are more rigorous and are applied earlier in the teacher education and certification pipeline in most of these countries, compared to the United States.
