Differentiating Teachers: Strength to the Profession.
Sharpes, Donald K.
In the formation of the United States, individual states yielded powers they rightfully possessed and thereby strengthened the nation. The situation for the education profession is analogous to this historical act: we must begin to think through the process of differentiating responsibility and representativeness of the teaching profession while preserving and strengthening the profession as a whole. In today's schools, teachers are differentiated either by grades or by the subject taught or by both. Instead, teachers could be differentiated by the same characteristics that mark administrative differentiation: that is, curriculum and instruction, research, community services, and urban affairs. A variety of teachers, a variety of essential teaching tasks, and a variety of techniques for each task are needed. (JA)
