In The Professors of Teaching nine scholars pool their insights and their divergent experiences within the profession to discuss and elucidate the origins, productivity, dilemmas, and future of the professorate. Emphasizing the need for professors of education to satisfy the norms of scholarship appropriate to the university, the contributors also underscore the need for the education faculty to work closely with those in the practicing profession—teachers in our nations' schools. The result is a frank and candid exposé which provides a clear sense of what must now be done in order for professors of education to be not only accepted but also respected within the academy and the teaching profession. Professionals, administrators, policy-makers—all those concerned with teacher preparation and practice will be challenged by the authors of The Professors of Teaching.

In the early 1960s America was in a confident mood and embarked on a series of efforts to solve the problems of poverty, racial discrimination, unemployment, and inequality of educational opportunity. The programs of the Great Society and the War on Poverty were undergirded by a broad consensus about what our problems as a nation were and how we should solve them. But by the early seventies both political and scholarly tides had shifted. Americans were divided and uncertain about what to do abroad, fearful of military inferiority, and pessimistic about the capacity of government to deal affirmatively with domestic problems. A new administration renounced the rhetoric of the Great Society and changed the emphasis of many programs. On the scholarly front, new research called into question the old faiths on which liberal legislation had been based. In this book, the sixteenth volume in the Brookings series in Social Economics, Henry Aaron describes both the initial consensus and its subsequent decline. He examines the evolution of attitude and pronouncements by scholars and popular writers on the role of the federal government and its capacity to bring about beneficial change in three broad areas: poverty and discrimination, education and training, and unemployment and inflation. He argues that the political eclipse of the Great Society depended more on events external to it—war in Vietnam, dissolution of the civil rights coalition, and, finally, the Watergate scandal and all its repercussions—than on its intrinsic failings. Aaron concludes that both the initial commitment to use national polices to solve social and economic problems and the subsequent disillusionment of scholars and laymen alike rest largely on preconceptions and faiths that have little to do with research themselves.
