A call for professionalism : American Federation of Teachers President Albert Shanker proposes the creation of a national exam for teachers by Albert Shanker( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Shanker, President of the American Federation of Teachers (aft), speaks about the national testing of teachers and calls for the creation of a new and better national examination for new teachers. While members of the aft have a few differences with some of the current reform proposals, the aft in general supports the overwhelming majority of specific proposals called for in the various reports on the state of education. Current examining procedures are inadequate. Problems exist in the nature and level of the testing, and also with conflicts regarding the quality and quantity of teachers needed. The aft supports the notion of a national teacher examination developed along the same lines as examinations for doctors, actuaries, or lawyers. Such an instrument and testing program could be developed by a group of leaders of educational organizations, college presidents and other professionals in the field who could constitute themselves as a non-governmental American board of education. Such an instrument and testing program could be developed within three to five years. The test should cover three general areas: subject matter knowledge, ability to make judgments to justify instructional decisions, and an internship program. Teacher organizations can have a very important role in the development as well as the acceptance of such a test in that the aft and the National Education Association could make passage of such an examination a requirement for membership.

Firing line : resolved: that we should move towards privatization, including schools - part 1( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These are well-matched teams, which given the strength of Mr. Buckley's team is saying a lot about Messrs. Shanler, Starr, and Honig. Buckley opens the proceedings by talking about President Reagan's privatization efforts in general, but the debaters quickly hone in on the schools; What effect would vouchers have on public schools? Would private schools be made to keep troublesome students? Could private schools, if they accepted voucher students, have any religious content? Two samples: Mr. Sowell: "As long as public schools are a monopoly, they will act as all monopolies act towards customers - with contempt." ... Mr. Starr: "I appreciate the subtle message of Mr. Buckley in staging this debate at a public institution which he, or at least Mr. Friedman, might wish to privatize, and which, if it were private, would have set a tuition high enough that many of you here today could not have afforded to attend."--Summary by Firing Line staff

Unions and the Academic Enterprise by Albert Shanker( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Excerpts from magazine and newspaper interviews with the president of the American Federation of Teachers concerning unions and collective bargaining at colleges and universities are presented. Topics concern: professionalism and economic self-interest, unions and freedom of inquiry, merit pay, academic elitism, the political influence of college teachers, faculty participation in governance, defining university management, the shrinking academic job market, tenure under attack, productivity in education, unions and affirmative action, and the role of college members in the American Federation of Teachers. It is shown that collective bargaining has dealt with economic conditions and due process procedures and does not conflict with professionalism. Collective bargaining and a union protect academic freedom and promote fairness in faculty salaries rather than relying on subjective decisions. Faculty members could be a potent political force in higher education, which depends on the tax structure and on public policy. For the most part, faculty senates have not had power in college governance, but they could continue to coexist with unions. The need to guarantee job stability for senior faculty and to provide educational programs for nontraditional students is addressed. Disagreement with efforts to promote productivity in higher education is expressed. (Sw)
