In The Professors of Teaching nine scholars pool their insights and their divergent experiences within the profession to discuss and elucidate the origins, productivity, dilemmas, and future of the professorate. Emphasizing the need for professors of education to satisfy the norms of scholarship appropriate to the university, the contributors also underscore the need for the education faculty to work closely with those in the practicing professionteachers in our nations schools. The result is a frank and candid exposé which provides a clear sense of what must now be done in order for professors of education to be not only accepted but also respected within the academy and the teaching profession. Professionals, administrators, policy-makersall those concerned with teacher preparation and practice will be challenged by the authors of The Professors of Teaching.
