dc.description.abstractThis article addresses the question of whether teaching in Zambia can be considered as a profession. Sociologists and other scholars worldwide have grappled with the question of whether or not teaching is a profession. No universally accepted This article addresses the question of whether teaching in Zambia can be considered as a profession. Sociologists and other scholars worldwide have grappled with the question of whether or not teaching is a profession. No universally accepted definition of a profession exists among social scientists. Nonetheless there does exist a combination of characteristics which are associated with professions. The article is divided into three sections. The first section examines the major characteristics of a profession. The second section evaluates the teaching fraternity in Zambia against these characteristics with focus on the factors responsible for the failure of the teaching fraternity to attain the status of a profession in Zambia. The third section suggests remedial measures considered necessary in the drive to make teaching a profession in Zambia.en
