Overview

This book is a study of how the changing ethos of schooling transformed and redefined what it means to be a teacher. The distinction between the ethos of teaching and the ethos of schooling is an important one. The fundamental reasons why people are drawn to the teaching profession have remained remarkably stable, while the ethos of the schools have changed since the mid -1960s. Although teachers' fundamental attitudes have not changed, the challenges they face related to their individual freedom, moral and social authority, and power have altered dramatically.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This study examines how teachers' attitudes have remained constant or changed since Dan Lortie's mid-1960s study of the meaning teachers find in their work. Emphasis is placed on teachers' personal constructions of freedom, authority, and power and how these issues inform their understanding of the function of schooling, their role in schooling, and the impact of recent educational reforms.
