Summary

The advent of the Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) provides hope and impetus for dramatic steps to be taken in redesigning the education profession. To contribute substantially to solving the major problems of educational manpower, school organization, and governance of the profession, the National Commission on Teacher Education and Professional Standards (NCTEPS) must reexamine its directions and emphases in light of changing problems. The problems of educational manpower include not only those of supply of personnel, but also of who is attracted to the profession, how entrance is arranged and controlled, why people stay or leave, etc. It is time to reorganize schools and to differentiate staff roles so that personnel can be deployed in ways which will make optimum use of interests, abilities, and commitments and afford teachers greater control of their own professional interests. And it is time to establish a variety o f categories of teaching personnel providing career patterns which encourage them to proceed with their own professional training and development. Such changes need to be accompanied with appropriate efforts to secure their basis in law. The governance of the profession should be undergirded by legislation and policies for the protection of rights and responsibilities as well as by machinery to deal with malpractice, unethical performance, and other forms of professional and legal violation.
