Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Today, when the key word in school reform is ``restructuring,'' Goodlad A Place Called School addresses the issues of teacher education and the problem of preparing teachers ``to deal with the daily circumstances of schooling while redesigning their schools.'' This study, begun in 1985 and covering diverse public and private colleges and universities, examines current practices in teacher education in comparison with the training of other professionals in such fields as law and medicine. In his model for redesigning teacher education, Goodlad proposes the creation of a school-university partnership and offers 19 postulates he deems essential for reform. Extensively documented, Goodlad's recommendations for change will be of great interest to those concerned with teacher training; general readers will find the book highly specialized. Nov.
Library Journal
The author, Director of the Center for Educational Renewal at the University of Washington, carves out a niche for his work on the shelf of books about the condition of the educational system in the United States by concentrating on the education of teachers. He argues that past methods are obsolete and teachers must be prepared to face new demands on them to compensate for deteriorating church, school, and neighborhood institutions. Chapter 2, which outlines the conditions that will attract good teachers, and Chapter 9, the story of an imaginary university with an exemplary program for teacher education, are the most thought-provoking sections of this well-researched volume. University libraries will be especially interested in acquiring it.-- Annette V. Janes, Hamilton P.L., Mass.

Goodlad education, U. of Washington presents the results of a five- year study on the state of teacher training programs. He tells why efforts to restructure education have failed, and presents a way to improve schools by changing the way teachers are taught. He describes the needs essential for effective education--including institutional commitment and support, program autonomy and protected resources, and deregulation of curriculum requirements.
