Schoolteachers' Resisted Images: Facing Stereotypes and Affirming Identities
Méndez, Pilar
International Education Studies, v11 n5 p100-109 2018
This paper aims to explore teachers' resistance practices in Colombia for affirmation purposes. It reveals how resistance practices have contributed to arguing against some imposed labels and stereotypes during different periods of time. Archaeology was the toolbox used to trace statements in teachers' voices from several documentary sources that built the archive. As a result, three important images were identified: the first was linked to the idea of teaching as vocation and the consideration of teachers as priests; the second referred to teaching as a profession and their own struggles to be recognised as subjects of knowledge, and the third one referred to their rejection of teaching defined as a function where teachers are considered technicians that meet functions.
