Professional Culture and Educational Change
Teaching is not yet a profession. The way we go about education reform is piecemeal, and is not likely to make a difference. The key to changing this is to link two sets of strategies: (a) those pertaining to teacher preparation and teacher development throughout the career, and (b) those related to school development. Teacher development and school development must be intimately related. In order to do this we need a deeper understanding of the dynamics of change. This article starts with an examination of the complexities of the change process and then turns to the matter of organizational and professional change.
