Being a Teacher: Reading 7. The Teacher's Purpose

Logo for Being a Teacher: Reading 7. The Teacher's Purpose
In this brief excerpt, Fullan and Hargreaves identify what they think characterizes professionalism in teaching. They argue that it is not so much the possession of a certain level of qualifications or status, nor the possession of a set of technical teaching skills. Rather, it is the full acceptance of the moral responsibility that is attached to the role of teachers today, and the ability to make minute-by-minute professional judgements in complex and uncertain situations.
