Overview

As the new millennium dawns teacher professionalism in Britain confronts its most fundamental challenges for over a century. Faced by centralizing governments that have mobilized parental support, the professional responsibilities which once characterized the professional status of teachers are being eroded. Curriculum content is now the responsibility of central government. So too is pupil assessment, initial and in-service training. Teaching method and school management are following rapidly. Even local management by local education authorities is threatened with elimination. In this challenging volume, twelve leading experts analyze the amazing recent history of the teaching profession in Britain, consider the future scenario and suggest ways to which teacher professionalism can reassert itself before it is too late.
