Primary School Teaching as a Career: The Views of the Successfully Recruited.
Thornton, Mary; Reid, Ivan
Journal of Education for Teaching, v27 n1 p111-12 Apr 2001
Explored British student teachers' views about their choice of elementary school teaching as a career. Data from surveys and interviews indicated that virtually all respondents had always wanted to teach, enjoyed working with children, felt that teaching brought job satisfaction, and considered teaching a good career that would be challenging. Some respondents also reported negative feelings about previous noneducational work. (SM)
