Synopsis

This volume explores the contemporary situation of teachers' careers and teachers' lives in the context of falling roles, educational cuts and government demands for fundamental change in educational processes.

Excerpt

The papers in this volume are a selection from those given at the conference on ‘Teachers’ Lives and Teachers’ Careers’ at St Hilda’s College, Oxford in September 1983. The editors are very grateful to the givers of other papers and participants at the conference whose contributions made the pulling together of a coherent collection from the proceedings so much easier. Colin Lacey, Martin Lawn, Margaret Bowen, Phil Carspecken and Henry Miller, Brian Davies and John Evans, Delscey Burns and Geoff Walford gave papers, and Bob Moon, Peter Woods, Sheila Riddell, Harry Osser, Peter Medway, Douglas Barnes, Bill Greer, Andy Hargreaves, Andrew Pollard and June Purvis also attended. This conference was one in a series that have been held at St Hilda’s College over a number of years, bringing together educational researchers committed to ethnographic and interactionist methods for the study of educational institutions and processes. Collections of papers drawn from previous conferences have already been published Teacher Strategies and Pupil Strategies (Editor: Peter Woods, Croom Helm, 1980), The Ethnography of Schooling (Editor: Martyn Hammersley, Nafferton, 1983), Curriculum Practice (Editors: Martyn Hammersley and Andrew Hargreaves, Falmer Press, 1983), Defining the Curriculum (Editors: Ivor Goodson and Stephen Ball, Falmer Press, 1984).
