Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Upon its initial publication, many reviewers dubbed Dan C. Lortie's Schoolteacher the best social portrait of the profession since Willard Waller's classic The Sociology of Teaching . This new printing of Lortie's classic--including a new preface bringing the author's observations up to date--is an essential view into the world and culture of a vitally important profession.
