Summary

This paper describes two types of teacher educators, discusses "in" and "out"phrases of educational jargon, and concludes with six proposals. The author criticizes teachers who teach six months in a ghetto school and then write a book about the terrible teaching of their colleagues; and he criticizes teacher educators in large universities who stay as far away as possible from the primary experience of teaching. Problems of the use of educational in-terms are discussed and exemplified by "education experimentation" and "discipline." The following proposals conclude this paper: (a) periodic mandatory stays in inner-city schools; (b) significant research directly applicable to large educational systems performed by competent and impartial experimenters; (c) a new look at the realities involved in mass education without the use of oversimplified in-words and cliches; (d) a nonbiased, realistic look at the problems of discipline within the classroom setting; (e) consideration of possible change that falls within the realm of present-day reality; and (f) a stop to the ridiculous and divisive rhetoric that divides all concerned educators.
