Vaaben, Nana
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v31 n5 p422-435 2018
The article analyses the performative effects of a working time law for Danish State School teachers. The law implied a shift from paying teachers WITH time to paying them FOR time in line with OEDC's shift from an input- to an outcome-oriented understanding of public sector performance. The law is thus seen as part of a globalized reform of education in neoliberal direction, and the implications are analyzed by drawing on psychoanalytically inspired theories as well as anthropological theories of ritualization, investigation the implication of this shift.
