Abcúg and Index interviews with CPS researchers on the situation of teacher training in Hungary and their experiences from Stanford Graduate School of Education

December 14, 2017

A journalist from Abcúg interviewed CPS Research Fellow Vera Messing and CPS Research Associate Agnes Kende who recently carried out a knowledge exchange at Stanford Graduate School of Education in the framework of the 'Overcoming Inequalities in Schools and Learning Communities (SALEACOM)' Project. The article is available as an online content in Abcúg and Index only in Hungarian.

The article presents the approach of teacher education at Stanford University about how to teach in classrooms serving students from diverse racial, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Our researchers also talk about the situation of the Hungarian teacher education system, despite of certain successful teacher education programs of cultural diversity, most of these programs and the schools themselves do not focus on the recognition of children from diverse social and ethnic backgrounds.
