Twenty-seven past presidents were contracted to participate in the study, and 19 responded (for a 70% response rate). Respondents were asked to comment on issues they believed would be and would not be important in the future and on trends in teacher education that concerned them. These data were analyzed using a content analysis procedure. Themes within the data are presented and synthesized.
