How Much of a Problem? A Reply to Ingersoll's "The Problem of Underqualified Teachers in American Secondary Schools."
Friedman, Stephen J.
Educational Researcher, v29 n5 p18-20 Jun-Jul 2000
Critiques an article about problems with underqualified secondary teachers and out-of-field teaching. Discusses the influence of subject knowledge on student learning, noting that literature suggests its impact is of little consequence. While research does not blame out-of-field teaching for students' inferior international assessment performance, recent research may provide insight into how subject knowledge affects student learning.
