In Search of Heroes: Give Educators a Place on the Pedestal.
Sparks, Dennis
Journal of Staff Development, v23 n1 p46-50 Win 2002
This interview examines teacher craft knowledge and educational quality, noting that schools cannot improve themselves and suggesting that in order to be taken seriously, the teaching profession must take seriously its heroes and the important work teachers do. The paper discusses the role of school-based reformers and the need for professional collaboration and teacher participation in change. (SM)
