This is a revised second edition of this highly successful book on teacher incompetence which, using research information, offers an analysis of three types of administrative response - tolerance of poor performance, attempts to salvage the teacher and efforts to induce the poor performer to resign or retire early. The author claims that nearly two million elementary and secondary school students are being "shortchanged" by incompetent teachers, and that the scale of the problem requires direct and early intervention.

"The book is well written, informative, and does a superb job of describing how administrators deal with incompetent teachers. Reading this is a must for adminstrators, school board members, teachers, and others who wish to address seriously the problem of teachers incompetence." -The Alberta Journal of Education Research, 1987

Tolerance and protection of the poor performer; salvage attempts; induced exits; anatomy of dismissal; managing the poor performer - a case; education at the crossroads; promoting teacher quality - further reflections.
