The Impact of Regulatory Environments on Early Childhood Professional Practice and Job Satisfaction: A Review of Conflicting Discourses
Fenech, Marianne
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v31 n2 p49-57 Jun 2006
This article juxtaposes contrasting discourses concerning the that impact regulatory systems--such as the NSW Children's Services Regulation and the National Quality Improvement and Accreditation System--have on the professional practice and job satisfaction of early childhood professionals in NSW. Juxtaposing dominant government discourses with conflicting critical discourses raises theoretical and practical issues about how the regulatory environment is perceived, the place it holds in early childhood professionals' thinking about quality early childhood practices, and the impact it may have on their job satisfaction.
