Situated Identities, Competing Cultural Models: Discourse Analysis of Policymakers' Views on Teaching

Journal of Educational Research and Practice, v3 n1 p50-64 2013
Because policymakers have a direct impact on schools, teachers, and therefore students, this study examined the discourse of policymakers in relation to their views on "quality" teaching. Findings from the study conclude the cultural models and discourses widely varied among policymakers. Their views were based on an idiosyncratic approach to teaching and learning. A fragmented understanding of quality teaching from policymakers as a whole emerged.
