Teachers and School Culture in the Czech Republic before and after 1989
Moree, Dana
Curriculum Journal, v24 n4 p586-608 2013
This article reports the findings of research on school culture in post-totalitarian society in the Czech Republic. The research explored restructuralisation and reculturalisation in the Czech school education system through analysis of school culture in one school located in a midsized town in the central part of the country. In-depth biographical interviews were carried out with teachers who taught in the school before and after 1989, the year of the fall of communism in the Czech Republic. The article offers a detailed description of how the totalitarian regime used teachers as its servants. At the same time, it offers an analysis of the changes that were provoked by the political transformation, and how teachers reacted to them. The research also reflects aspects of change in the country as a whole as it underwent dynamic development.
