Teachers: Not Will but Can They Change?
Frymier, Jack R.
SEC Newsletter, Strategies for Educational Change, v2 n6 p1-4 Nov 1968 (The Ohio State University)
Meaningful and effective change in education is possible only if educators are themselves psychologically able to change. This means that the profession must decide whether to accept or reject people into the next phase of the professional preparation program or into the profession itself. At least seven points in the professional time line can be identified as appropriate for such decisions: (1) admission to college or university work, (2) admission to a teacher education program, (3) admission to student teaching, (4) receipt of an education degree, (5) receipt of a teaching certificate, (6) admission to a professional position, and (7) admission to advanced training.
