Much of school reform is misguided because it is insufficiently concerned with the quality of the teaching force and the working conditions of teachers. Authors Cohen and Scheer offer a common sense approach and logical recommendations to this subject of national concern. Teacher-Centered Schools calls for a redirection of money and energy to raise the status of teaching and to redefine the nature of work. Intended for academics and scholars of American education, this book is divided into six chapters with topics devoted to: salaries, working conditions, training, hiring and recruitment, school governance, and professional development.
