"For the Sake of the Children" as the Worth of the Teacher? The Gendered Discourses of the New Zealand National Kindergarten Teachers' Employment Negotiations.
Duncan, Judith
Gender and Education, v8 n2 p159-70 Jun 1996
Using M. Foucault's interpretation of discourse, identifies and examines two dominant discourses from New Zealand kindergarten teachers within the texts from the 1992 National Kindergarten Teachers' Collective Employment Contract Negotiations. Each discourse reveals teachers in a powerless position for negotiating wages and working conditions, but also presents different possibilities outside of the negotiating setting. The discourses illustrate the gendered nature of these teachers' position. (GR)
