Past Tense, Present Subjunctive, Future Imperfect: Reaction to Fagan's Article

pp. 22—26

Fagan is now well-established among school psychology’s historians. No one else has so clearly and comprehensively explored the developments leading to the current state of school psychology.Through scholarly review of document sand writings he has provided missing information and interpretation that have clarified how the specialty we call school psychology was created. He has helped us to understand why we are what we are: a largely non-doctoral profession outside the mainstream of American professional psychology, still primarily authorized through educational auspices, somewhat less able (powerful) than other practitioner specialties in psychology to influence public opinion and gain recognition,but, nevertheless, doing well, especially over the period Fagan calls the Thoroughbred Years (1970-present).”
