Teaching--The Peculiar Profession: A Review Essay.
McClure, Maureen W.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v35 n4 p562-72 Oct 1999
The "Handbook" chapter on teaching describes market-oriented and constructivist reforms that are contradictory. The former constructs work as scripts for production; the latter constructs work as scaffolds for expression. Teaching must resist external scripting and assume responsibility for its own agency. Teachers' allegiance is to voters, not consumers. (MLH)
