Creating a New Teaching Profession

Creating a New Teaching Profession“Improving teacher quality is a necessary—indeed, the key—ingredient for improving our nation’s schools,” the editors of Creating a New Teaching Profession conclude. But putting this advice into practice may require radical reforms in the way schools attract, retain, evaluate, and develop teachers. The scholars and practitioners in this book go beyond empirical research to offer private sector lessons and innovative reforms to jolt the teaching profession from complacency.


Creating a New Teaching Profession, edited by Dan Goldhaber and Jane Hannaway, is available from the Urban Institute Press (ISBN 978-0-87766-762-9, paperback, 348 pages, $29.50)
