The Case for Change: Rethinking the Preparation of Educators

Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 19, 1993 - Education - 317 pages
So many reformers talk about fundamental changes in schooling without understanding what such deep changes entail for children, teachers, and administrators. Seymour Sarason does. In his provocative, mind-bAnding and passionate style, Sarason again argues against short-term repairs of schools. He seeks long-term prevention and he sees the lever, as John Goodlad did, in the preparation of teachers. Add this to your small library of wisdom about school reform.

?Larry Cuban, professor of education, Stanford University.
