Teachers for Our Nation's Schools

John I. Goodlad, Author Jossey-Bass $40.45 (427p) ISBN 978-1-55542-270-7
Today, when the key word in school reform is ``restructuring,'' Goodlad ( A Place Called School ) addresses the issues of teacher education and the problem of preparing teachers ``to deal with the daily circumstances of schooling while redesigning their schools.'' This study, begun in 1985 and covering diverse public and private colleges and universities, examines current practices in teacher education in comparison with the training of other professionals in such fields as law and medicine. In his model for redesigning teacher education, Goodlad proposes the creation of a school-university partnership and offers 19 postulates he deems essential for reform. Extensively documented, Goodlad's recommendations for change will be of great interest to those concerned with teacher training; general readers will find the book highly specialized. (Nov.)
