A Discourse of "Performativities" and "Fabrications" in Performance Management for Teachers: An Australian Perspective
Naidu, Sham
Online Submission
Performance Management clearly illustrates an attempt by the State to control the work of teachers by making them more efficient, more effective and more accountable. This article will critically scrutinise this bureaucratic process and amplify the voices of those being controlled and will highlight first-hand accounts of how teachers employ defence mechanisms ("performativities and fabrications") in order to resist evaluation as a form of bureaucratic and ideological control.
