Teachers Matter: Connecting Work, Lives and Effectiveness

By Christopher Day; Pam Sammons et al. | Go to book overview

Notes
1. In fact, parents are only entitled to express a preference for a school of their choice. Research indicates that more advantaged parents are more likely to seek to exercise choice. In some areas distance and transport effectively curtail any real choice of school.
2. Local education authorities are now known as local authorities (LAs) and this term will be used throughout the book.
3. Many of the areas relevant to VITAE related to teachers' personal lives. For example, career, emotions, identity and commitment, are explored in later Chapters, therefore not included here.
4. One limitation of the VITAE research design was the absence of classroom observation data (a component of the original proposal that was not funded) for the 300 teachers in the case study sample. The effect of this was that data on different aspects of teachers' classroom practice – including teacher–pupil interactions, etc. – were not collected. Thus, we could not explore variations between teachers in specific aspects of their classroom teaching and pupils' responses in this research study. As a consequence, our quantitative analyses could not measure and test a number of potentially important features of effective teaching behaviours identified in the school and teacher effectiveness literature nor investigate the extent to which they were empirically confirmed for the VITAE sample.
5. The '+'or (−) in combination with the number refers to the teachers who have demonstrated upward or downward professional life phase trajectories.
6. The distribution of late entrants and career-break teachers in the 4–7 professional life phase is: 'growing' group: 6 late entrants; 'coping/managing' group: 7 late entrants, 2 career-break teachers; 'vulnerable/declining' group: 5 late entrants, 1 career-break teacher.
7. Four teachers had very little data and therefore could not be categorized into any sub-groups.
8. Two teachers had little data.
