Hawley, Willis D.; And Others
This paper presents an overview of several of the problems and conditions of the teaching profession and discusses different issues related to the development and implementation of policies, programs, and practices designed to address them. The opening section examines the conditions of teaching--employment opportunities, teacher evaluation, professional development, professional status, and salary structures. In the following sections of the paper, discussions are offered on issues related to teacher entry and retention, the enhancement of competence and the facilitation of its use, and incentives and motivation. An overview is provided of several organizing concepts through which these issues might be explored, and issues related to the meaning of "teacher quality and effectiveness" are discussed. (JD)
