Taking Back the Teaching Profession: Can It Be Done?

picRae Pica asks, “Why are teachers the "Rodney Dangerfields" of the professional world?” on BAM Radio. Her guests move beyond lamenting the lack of respect teachers. They have some theories, and, better than that, they have some advice on how teachers can begin to turn things around and reclaim the profession!

Daniel Willingham @DTWillingham is currently a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia.
Lisa Nielsen @InnovativeEdu  is an educator and author of the bookTeaching Generation Text.
Jerry Blumengarten @cybraryman1 taught for 32 years at inner city NY school.     
Steve Paine is the president of P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) and a consummate lifelong educator who served as West Virginia's 25th state superintendent of schools.
