In this work, the views of thinkers in education who have been concerned with expertise are scanned. In the introduction, the importance of the subject is established. The point is made that the ratio of administrators has gone from one supervisor to 32 teachers in 1920 to one administrator for everey 12 teachers in 1985. As well, specialists in teaching have increased 1, 000 percent in the sixteen years before 1980. In their plans for career stages the current reform efforts of the Holmes group and the Carnegie Forum have emphasized an increase in both steps of the hierarchy of education and the type of specialization that might occur. It is crusial to consider “our most prominent educations thinkers” for their “insights about the effects of educations expertise”.
