Teachers for the South: Pedagogy and Educationists in the University of Tennessee, 1844-1995
The latest cycle of national educational critiques and reforms has created an interest in gaining historical leverage on teacher education. With a broad audience in mind, Professor Allison provides a case study of the work of teacher educators in the academy and the «field.» He critically examines educationists' scholarship, status in the university, service to school and teachers, and impulse to engage in social reform. This is the first book-length study of the history of teacher education in the South.
