The latest cycle of national educational critiques and reforms has created an interest in gaining historical leverage on teacher education. With a broad audience in mind, Professor Allison provides a case study of the work of teacher educators in the academy and the -field.- He critically examines educationists' scholarship, status in the university, service to school and teachers, and impulse to engage in social reform. This is the first book-length study of the history of teacher education in the South.
