Improving the Training and Evaluation of Teachers at the Secondary School Level Educating the Educators in Pursuit of Excellence
|Author: ||Schott, C. J.|
Written in response to the controversial "search for excellence" in American education which has provoked fierce debate in the past decade. Contains case studies of reform-biased experiments in education, such as the Florida Beginning Teacher Program and PROTEACH, and includes a lengthy debate as to whether universities are the best place to prepare teachers and what means should be employed to evaluate teachers. The author also hopes to stimulate a healthy skepticism about the current direction of educational reform.
