“Teaching is a life of continuous learning that requires support from an array of groups that, in the past, have rarely worked in concert to provide it. This book describes what is both necessary and feasible.”
—From the Foreword by Patricia A. Wasley
“These thoughtful and provocative essays contribute to our understanding of ways to renew and sustain good teaching. Anyone interested in matters of teacher induction, professional development, college–school partnerships, and the role of higher education in teacher development will find these essays a necessary read.”
David G. Imig, President and CEO, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
“John Goodlad and Timothy McMannon have captured many of the issues state board members are grappling with as they pursue the goal to have a highly qualified teacher in every classroom, every day. As states track and modify policies on program approval, licensure, recruitment, and retention, this work will help to inform their deliberations.”
