Product Description

In this book, distinguished education thinker Seymour Sarason calls for a complete reconceptualization of preparatory programs for educators. Sarason begins with the premise that if you want to change the education of students, you have to first change the education of their teachers. He compares this "primary prevention" approach to medical research on debilitating disease. Just because a cure or a solution is not right around the corner, there is no reason, he says, to abandon the research and efforts designed to help us arrive at a solution. Sarason's examination reminds us once again that school reform is a complex problem with no quick-fix solution.

Publisher's Description

So many reformers talk about fundamental changes in schooling without understanding what such deep changes entail for children, teachers, and administrators. Seymour Sarason does. In his provocative, mind-bAnding and passionate style, Sarason again argues against short-term repairs of schools. He seeks long-term prevention and he sees the lever, as John Goodlad did, in the preparation of teachers. Add this to your small library of wisdom about school reform.
?Larry Cuban, professor of education, Stanford University.
