Editorial Reviews

Eleven contributions from researchers in North America, England, Australia, Israel, and Scandinavia discuss issues that are at the forefront of educational reform. They distinguish between six different models of professionalism; disentangle altruistic visions of professionalism from ones that are self-serving or serve to disguise and excuse greater bureaucratic control; and portray what professionalism looks like in practice in the daily working lives of teachers.
