Abstract:

"Much of school reform in misguided because it's insufficiently concerned with the quality of the teaching force and the working conditions of teachers. Rosetta Cohen and Samuel Scheer offer a common-sense approach to this subject of national concern, with logical recommendations for redirecting money and energy to raise the status of teaching and redefining the nature of work done by teachers. Intended for academics and scholars of American education, Teacher-Centered Schools: Reimagining Education Reform in the Twenty-First Century is divided into six chapters that examine salaries, working conditions, training, hiring and recruitment, school governance, and professional development."--Jacket.
