Scientification of teaching as State initiated professionalization: A road to professional status?

Nilsson-Lindström, Margareta LU and Beach, Dennis (2012) Konference i Nordisk Netvaerk for professionsforskning p.1-16
Abstract
Today teachers in elementary and secondary schools aspire toward a professional status in the same category as that of engineers, business managers and lawyers. However, these ambitions are not an exclusively modern phenomenon. This paper analyses influences on professionalization efforts in relation to teaching and teacher education from a historical perspective. It traces efforts toward professionalism on a perilous road from a clerically consecrated to a scientifically grounded praxis with emphasis on the shaping and reshaping of teacher specific knowledge bases in teacher education.
