A Possible Dream: A New Education and New Models of Teacher. The Year of the Non-Conference. Emphasis: The Teacher and His Staff, Working Paper 2.
Edelfelt, Roy A.
The introduction to this working paper notes that its purpose is to provoke creative and critical discussion and thought about the business of remaking the teaching profession. The major section analyzes some aspects of our culture which point up the need for a new education, listing and challenging assumptions about schools, learners, and society upon which educators have habitually operated and which still dominate educational thought and action. Other sections ("A New Education" and "New Kinds of Teachers and New Concepts of Teaching as a Career") predict and describe developments which are implied by the reinterpretation of assumptions which are no longer valid. The final section poses 10 questions designed to elicit discussion and action in remaking education and the teaching profession. Included is a six-item list of references on differentiated staffing models. (JS)
