The Smarts of Teachers.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n4 p330-31 Dec 1996
John Lee's little-known 1984 study "Tomorrow's Teachers" shows that potential teachers' grade-point averages during 1974-83 did not decline or differ from other majors' GPAs. A 1996 UCLA study documents resistance to outcomes-based education at 10 schools. Well-educated parents of former high-track students pressured administrators to resegregate instruction by offering differentiated curricula. (MLH)
