Teaching As Moral Activity: How Public Policy Influences Urban Educational Practice.
Ridenour, Carolyn S.; Lasley, Thomas J., II
Teacher Education and Practice, v15 n1-2 p7-35 Spr-Sum 2002
Asserts that market strategies and competition as pathways to higher urban student achievement threaten the moral purposes of education, and if policymakers continue this emphasis, schooling as fundamental to the common good and democracy may suffer. The paper discusses teaching as a moral imperative and a professional activity; public policy risks, reform critics, and deregulation of urban schools; and urban school destabilization and school choice.
