What Must We Do to Improve the Education of Those Who Intend to Teach?
Gallagher, Thomas G.
Two ever-present occupational hazards that persistently weaken educational efforts in schools are (1) organizational aspects of the institution that distract from the goal of helping young people become the best possible individuals they can, and (2) infatuation with the means of education to the extent that the ends of education are not central or salient. Improved effectiveness in education will come from teachers who possess extraordinary qualities of mind and heart, exhibit a constant readiness to begin anew and adapt, and have been extremely carefully prepared.
