Notes on the Disestablishment of Pedagogy or Who Needs Research in Teacher Education Anyway?
Kleinman, Seymour
This paper argues that good teaching is an intrinsic talent rather than a learned skill, and that the teaching act is an artistic expression. Thus, the thrust of research in teacher education becomes a fruitless exercise. Efforts in professional preparation should be directed toward the discovery and revelation of the talented rather than adopting the position that individuals can be molded into good teachers. Present research efforts appear to be based on the manipulation of subjects and environments in order to produce "desired" responses. Therefore, all that follows when such practices are adopted is suspect. (Author/JS)
