Redesigning Teaching: Professionalism or Bureaucracy?

Provides concrete case studies of school districts implementing teacher reforms. The cases describe the changes, give the history and dynamics of each project, examine how teachers respond to new policies and procedures, and tell how state policy affects local efforts to change teaching. Identifies challenges that state governments, school administrators, and teacher associations must face if they really want to professionalize teaching.
