Education at the Crossroads book
Throughout this book I ha ve striven to provide a lucid. dispassionate description and analysis of how administrators respond to the problem of teacher incompetence and of the conditions which shape these responses. In this chapter I feel obligated to move beyond what is and offer a glimpse into what might occur in the near future. A window of opportunity is openin g for the public schools, but this opportunity is fraught with perils as well as possibilities. By discussing the opportunity, the perils and the possibilities which loom over the educa tio nal horizon, I hope to engage school offICials and teachers in a reasoned consideration of loca l personnel policies and practices. If this book stimulates reRection on wha t is, what might be, and w hat shou ld be, it w ill have served its pu rposes .
