Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book is comparable to Studs Terkel's Working ( LJ 3/1/74) but the spectrum has been narrowed to practicing classroom teachers (and some administrators). Not a school-reform book per se, the thoughts expressed by the approximately 200 interviewees do shed light on that topic from the perspective of those who must implement reforms. Teachers reveal what they like about their jobs (e.g., a sense of creativity and working with students) and what they don't (classes too large, lack of funding and administrative support, interruptions, paperwork, low wages, and so on); they stay because someone has to care and do something positive for the next generation. The crux of the problem is funding; one can't be expected to achieve excellence with minimum funding. Teachers Talk is a worthy corollary to Susan Johnson's Teachers at Work ( LJ 5/1/90). Caveat administratus!-- Scott Johnson, Meridian Community Coll . Lib., Miss.
