written by Michael Marder
University faculty can take for granted that they have very broad authority to decide on the best educational programs for students and to implement them without much interference.  Unless they are preparing future teachers.  Suddenly many people care about program details, and it becomes essential to interact with groups within and without the university, particularly at the State level.  I will discuss some of the developments that led to and influenced the UTeach preparation program I co-direct, including a Texas law abolishing secondary education majors, benefits of partnership with education colleagues, what comes of a highlight in the Gathering Storm report, the Texas move to require physics in the default high school graduation plan, elimination of Texas physics programs, and the recent Texas reversal that stopped requiring physics, chemistry, or algebra 2 in default high school graduation plans.
