A collection of thoughts from some of education's greatest thinkers on the theme "Restoring Honor to the Teaching Profession" and what can and should be done to improve the image of teachers and schools. Honor, dignity and respect in teaching are all enormously important to beginning as well as experienced teachers, and, in an era of bad press, it is not surprising that many teachers question their value and importance as educators. These essays, submitted by laureate members of Kappa Delta Pi, are an interesting and divergent collection of thoughts, ideas and suggestions that address the quest to re-validate teaching as a noble and honorable profession. It is hoped that these writings will serve as a springboard for discussions in colleges and universities, at KDP chapter meetings, and at professional conferences throughout the country. Contributing educators include: Robert H. Anderson, Ernest L. Boyer, Harry S. Broudy, William G. Carr, Elliot W. Eisner, Ned A. Flanders, Arthur W. Foshay, John Hope Franklin, William Friday, Theodore M. Hesburgh, Alice Miel, Harold G. Shane, Ralph W. Tyler, and William Van Til.
