Hope for a Different Kind of Pedagogy in Greece in Times of Crisis
Chalari, Maria
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v15 n2 p154-187 Oct 2017
This paper is based on a study conducted in 2014 that aimed to learn more about teachers' experiences of the recent political and economical changes in Greece and the new challenges that stem from these, as well as teachers' perceptions of the possibilities for the future. This study attempted to seek out possibilities of hope, particularly those possibilities which are articulated by teachers. Specifically, it attempted to explore how we can build on the strengths of the present education system in order to transform it and create a different system that will suit the current major societal changes and face the challenging circumstances. Throughout this study, it is not assumed that teachers have solutions, nor that they are solely responsible for reconstruction, but rather that they have a worthwhile contribution that may offer possibilities, and which should be heard. As a result, this research study endeavoured to give voice to teachers' concerns, anxieties, commitments, and hopes. This paper focuses on teachers' views about the possible role of the Greek education system in the reconstruction of society and political life in post-crisis Greece, and on teachers' hopes about the creation of an education system that will suit the current major societal changes and face the challenging new circumstances.
