Abstract

We currently live in an era of neoliberalism where privatization and profit are held up as political ideals. The ascendency of this ideology threatens the notion that public schools can serve not only as institutions that supply credentials but also as institutions that lay the building blocks for American democracy. This essay argues that teacher educators play an essential role in preserving public education as a public good.
