English education programs foster a sense of authority, a spirit of inquiry, and a belief in the possibility of change among prospective and inservice teachers as well as English educators. Belief statements focus on ways to conceive, express, justify, and enact a strong educational program. In conceptualizing the following belief statements, we recognize that English education programs share common goals as well as exhibit uniqueness defined by the specific contexts in which programs are located.
