What makes a good teacher, a committed teacher, one who comes up with new strategies, ideas, and programs that improve how kids learn? What kind of minimum performance standards should teachers be held to? How are teachers encouraged to do more? Will higher salaries improve classroom performance? How do teachers view these questions? Teachers and Their Workplace addresses how commitment, performance, and productivity--from individual as well as organizational standpoints--affect teachers, schools, and students. The book examines the how and why of current school standards, confronts both directions for future research and, more importantly, potential solutions to current personal problems. An outstanding team of contributors explores conditions and attitudes about work from teachers' perspectives; models of school organization, social and psychological issues, and economic theories; and alternatives for professional development.
