Teacher in America
The old plan and purpose of teaching the young what they truly need to know survives only in the private sector.
With his customary wit and grace, Dr. Barzun contrasts the ritual of education with the lost art of teaching. Twenty-one chapters deal with three major issues: the practice of teaching, the subject matter to be taught, and the institutional and cultural aspects of teaching.
Jacques Barzun is a renowned scholar, teacher, and author who lectures widely since his retirement in 1993.
