sional societies in science, mathematics, and engineering have the potential to play a critical role in improving teacher education. However, the various disciplines must find ways to work together to develop and implement teacher education programs and activities that are in concert with recommendations from national organizations and that promote consistent goals for each discipline. The CSMTP calls on umbrella organizations such as the Council of Scientific Society Presidents or others in specific disciplines to begin this dialogue by convening representatives from professional societies to discuss their individual and collective roles in teacher education.
