Teachers in Class
Van Galen, Jane
Equity & Excellence in Education, v41 n1 p98-113 Jan 2008
In this article, I argue for a closer read of the daily "class work" of teachers, as posited by Reay, 1998. In developing exploratory class portraits of four teachers who occupy distinctive social positions (two from working-class homes now teaching upper-middle-class children and two from upper-middle-class homes now teaching poor children), I explore the class constraints within which teachers work. (Contains 4 notes.)
