Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
Education, like any facet of the business world, has problems. Some of these problems, such as financial obligations, are major. Some, such as a lost library book, are minor. Regardless, there remains many problems. In today's educational society, the common perception is that teachers are happy when best left alone. However, there is a growing feeling that teachers feel very isolated, have no way of moving up the career ladder, and fear the process of supervision and evaluation. Chapman and Lowther, in their article "Teacher Satisfaction with Teaching," explained that "teachers want to learn and be motivated. We must increase their job satisfaction, recognize accomplishments, and provide for change and challenge."
