Teachers: The Missing Voice in Education
Relates and interprets responses on two surveys taken by teachers in Dade County (Miami), Florida, in 1964 and 1984. Teachers speak about goals and means of achieving them; rewards of teaching (declining steadily across the twenty years with student and parent disinterest at an all-time low, public respect for teachers at its nadir, unprecedented administrative interference, and villification by the media--not to mention rapidly shrinking salaries); competency-based education and accountability. The authors, past schoolteachers turned academics, synthesize the data in the final chapters: proposing an alternative conception of learning; challenging existing assumptions and practices. An appendix describes the methodological framework of the surveys and reprints survey questions. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
