Professionalism and Politics: Toward a More Realistic Assessment of the Issue.
De Young, Alan J.
Clearing House, v53 n6 p268-70 Feb 1980
The author critiques those calls for the professionalization of teachers which fail to consider the political realities of school life. In the school bureaucracy, he argues, teachers are in competition with other groups for decision-making power. Therefore, increased teacher autonomy and authority hold potential for conflict. (SJL)
