Teachers in International Schools: A Global Educational "Precariat"?
Bunnell, Tristan
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v14 n4 p543-559 2016
An over-looked global educational development has been the exponential growth of "international schools." The field in 2014 involved almost 350,000 educators in over 7000 English-medium schools in non-English-speaking countries. This is expected to rise to half a million educators, mainly American and British, in 10,000 schools by 2022. The field has never constituted a "system," and it remains largely uninspected, unmonitored and unregulated. There was substantial evidence from both social media comment and real-life reports in the popular press during 2013 and 2014 that the field is becoming an increasingly precarious one for teachers.
