This book focuses on the concerns about the quality and competency of teachers. The effectiveness of teachers has long been a public concern and the aspiration to reform schools has been a recurrent theme in American education. Retaining, or in some cases restoring, the public confidence in the schools is essential for the continuation of the educational enterprise.
