Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of ten essays explores the debate concerning the link (or lack thereof) between teacher preparation and teacher quality. New importance has been accorded the topic since the federal No Child Left Behind legislation in January 2002, and the goal of this volume is "to move beyond impassioned rhetoric by presenting fresh research on key elements of the teacher-quality challenge and by posing next-generation models of reform." The first section of the book assesses political, policy, and research considerations; the second section addresses the long-standing debate concerning the necessary qualifications for licensed teachers; and the last section proposes new methods by which states could ensure teacher quality. Each well-crafted essay averages 30 pages, with extensive endnotes, and is directed to those actively engaged in this field or doing research on the topic-not the general reader. Recommended only for large academic or public libraries with significant holdings in education.-Ari Sigal, Catawba Valley Community Coll. Lib., Hickory, NC Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
