Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"Teachersadvances knowledge, provokes concern, and offers fresh perspectives that stimulate the search for solid solutions. By grappling with messy complexities, Cohn and Kottkamp point up the shallowness of the panaceas that are so common in educational policy and practice. I strongly recommend this scholarly and accessible book and hope that those whose ideas and decisions shape American education will give it the close attention it merits." --Dan. C. Lortie, Professor of Education and Director of Midwest Administration Center at the University of Chicago

"Marilyn Cohn and Robert Kottkamp have it just right in terms of what schools are and need to be: they've caught the voices of teachers, particularly as they reflect on their inability to affect the system; they've captured in text and nuance the considerable strengths that teachers could bring to the changing of the system; and they have described a future for teaching and learning that will work in the best interests of all of us." -- Robert M. McClure, Director, Mastery in Learning Consortium, National Center for Innovation, National Education Association

"We all hear that schools aren't what they used to be. But Cohn and Kottkamp get behind the newspaper headlines and into schools to show us just how different--and similar--things really are. The result of uncovering schools as teachers see them is an eye-opener to the problems of education and the prospects for reform." -- Albert Shanker, President, American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO

"Those who believe, as I do, that teachers must be at the center of school reform, will find Teachers: The Missing Voice in Educationan enormously useful and truly important book. Marilyn Cohn and Robert Kottkamp have been in the classroom themselves, and, in this book, get us very close to teachers and their work. They provide a clear understanding of the agonies and the joys of this great profession--both past and present. By telling teachers' stories that are both poignant and compelling, and by interpreting the implications of those stories for meaningful change, this book offers us a different and more viable vision for the future." -- Ernest L. Boyer, President, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

Marilyn M. Cohn is Director of Teacher Education at Washington University, and Robert B. Kottkamp is Associate Professor in the Department of Administration and Policy Studies at Hofstra University.
