Undermining a Profession.
Sutton, James H.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n2 p158-60,162,164 Oct 1993
Reviews the motives behind four Iowa university presidents' decision to drop NCATE (the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education), including budgetary shortfalls, declining program quality, NCATE's "intrusion" into liberal arts domains, antipathy toward accountability, and negative attitudes toward teaching. By acting unilaterally and hastily, the university presidents have weakened their own legitimacy. (MLH)
