Abstract

Highlighting the role of teachers in school change, this book explores the important related issues of professional identity, teacher self-efficacy, leadership and autonomy in the context of contested improvement agendas.
At the heart of this book is a fresh perspective on schooling, in which teacher agency is considered a fundamental dimension of professional development and key to school improvement. This raises necessary and challenging questions about purposes and processes in education.
