Teachers and the Policy Reform Agenda: Becoming Policy Aware, Policy Wise and Policy Active.
Stemming from my article entitled, "Teachers and the Policy Reform Agenda: The Changing Emphasis in Educational Policy Analysis," this article describes the changing landscape of educational policy analysis. Here, I illustrate that traditionally teachers have been, to a certain degree, involved in policy processes. However, the degree to which this happens currently, especially in the construction of major educational policies, is questionable. In my opinion, teachers have been marginalised from the main policy arena. Thus, in order for them to reclaim their voices in policy, I offer some suggestions that will enable teachers to become Policy Aware, Policy Wise and Policy Active in policy processes both at the macro level and the micro level.
