Extending Theorisations of the Global Teacher: Care Work, Gender, and Street-Level Policies
Robert, Sarah A.
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v37 n3 p445-464 2016
This article is concerned with teachers' negotiation of global transitions premised on improving educational opportunity with implications for professionalism. The study blends sociology of gender, work, and organisations and gender policy analysis to theorise teachers' policy negotiations. I explore how 20 Argentine teachers mediate 3 programmes' demands for care work. Policy as practice and street-level bureaucracy are applied to data to interrogate for gendered boundary work. I propose the addition of care work, gender, and a street-level view to Maguire's global teacher.
