Teacher Professionalism: The Wrong Conversation.
Coulter, David; Orme, Liz
Education Canada, v40 n1 p4-7 Spr 2000
Defining teachers as professionals in the same way that doctors or engineers are professionals is reductionist because such definition generally distorts the moral dimensions of teaching by using the wrong language (clients, customers), focusing on limited forms of knowledge, and ignoring the fundamental democratic character of education.
