Overview

What is it really like to be a teacher today? Teaching—The Imperiled Profession goes beyond conventional analyses, to probe the profession and various threats to its viability. Daniel L. Duke has drawn on his own and current educational research—including surveys of teacher opinion, interviews with teachers, and press coverage of educational issues—to uncover and examine a complex array of factors that contribute to the troubled state of the profession and the unprecedented discouragement of its practitioners. The book also analyzes traditional sources of support.

Teaching—The Imperiled Profession provides prospective teachers with a realistic picture of the profession today. It identifies a set of concerns on which citizens might reasonably focus attention, in order to forestall any future deterioration. It provides the educator, administrator, and policy-maker with a comprehensive set of recommendations for revitalizing the profession. The book also serves as a concise history of the teaching profession as it has developed in the United States during the twentieth century.
