Professionalism and Community Perspectives on Reforming Urban Schools

by Karen Seashore Louis, Sharon D., Ph.D Kruse

School-based professional community is a concept that portrays teachers as working together towards a set of shared goals of improved professionalism for themselves and increased learning opportunities for students.
