Overview

'This book is a wonderfully intimate account of the feelings of teachers about their managers, and a useful staff development tool at INSET or for personal reflection.... One of the excellent strands in this book is the end section of each chapter - A Management Perspective: Issues for Consideration - which will provoke much discussion within actual and aspiring management. Taken out of context each is thought- provoking; in context professionality will be challenged. Recommended for those wishing to improve their management skills, and the seriously nosy!' - Education Review

Teacher Morale, Job Satisfaction and Motivation focuses on the much neglected perspective of the 'managed' teacher.
