The Teachers of 2030: Creating a Student-Centered Profession for the 21st Century
Berry, Barnett
Center for Teaching Quality
This monograph appears midway through the development of a book on the future of teaching, scheduled for publication in the fall of 2010. The book is a team effort, undertaken by 12 accomplished educators from across the United States, who have agreed to systematically study and speculate about public education and the teaching profession in the year 2030. As they go about this work, these teacher leaders are drawing upon their own experiences, current policy research and debate, and the insights of other future-thinkers who, like themselves, look at the educational, social and political trends of today and begin to imagine best-case scenarios about learning and teaching tomorrow. This paper presents a progress report on the TeacherSolutions 2030 (TS2030) project, written from the perspective of the author, who is President and CEO of the Center for Teaching Quality and a writing partner with the TS2030 team. In this monograph, the author speaks in his own voice about the future of the teaching profession, but he draws deeply on the understandings and insights emerging from his teacher colleagues as they continue work on next year's book from Teachers College Press. (Contains 59 endnotes and 4 figures.)
