Teachers, Gender and Careers.
Acker, Sandra, Ed.
This book attempts to move gender to the center of debate and discusion about teachers' lives and careers. It consists of 13 chapters written by 15 different authors. Chapters on conceptual and theoretical issues are balanced by reports of empirical research and reflections on personal experience. The book develops an appreciation of both common features and diversity in teachers' experiences and perspectives, as influenced not only by biography and personal characteristics, but also by cultures within educational institutions, labor market conditions for teachers, historical and contemporary educational policy, gender divisions, and other social divisions in the wider society.
