Schools of education "have become ensnared improvidently in the academic and political cultures of their institutions and have neglected their professional allegiances,'' argue Geraldine Joncich Clifford and James W. Guthrie in their forthcoming book Ed School: A Brief for Professional Education.

Because of such conflicting interests, they write, the influence of the schools "has been neither consistent nor positive in the professionalization of teaching.''
The authors--professors of education at the University of California, Berkeley--base their analysis on case studies tracing the historical development of graduate departments associated with "the nation's most influential research universities.''

The newspaper retains sole editorial control over the content of the articles that are underwritten by the foundations.
