Current Issues in the Education of Teachers

by Morris L. Cogan 1975

The number of important issues in the education of teachers is so large that those selected for discussion here represent only a small fraction of those meriting treatment. On the other hand, although the present choice of issues is inevitably personal rather than defensibly representative, we have tried to select questions that seem to us to be of primary rather than secondary importance. The major topics treated include: (a) the relation of the public esteem of teachers to the learning of their students; (b) the tremendous disparity between what the novice teacher needs from his preservice education and the time allocated for it; (c) educational theory and practice and in-service education; (d) the importance of in-service education; and (e) the teacher as person.
