The author addresses the issue of tenure for college teachers in the U.S. He describes the nature of higher education. He explains that the founders of the American Association for Teaching and Curriculum (AATC) claimed that the organization and other groups such as it came from the outgrowth of the professiorate's desire to know the practice. He emphasizes that both curriculum and teaching should reflect the common assumption that enhancing educational policy and practice is a complicated issue.
