Progressive Alternatives? Teachers' Experience of Autonomy and Accountability in the School Community
Warwick, Paul; Cunningham, Peter
Education 3-13, v34 n1 p27-36 Mar 2006
This paper considers the experiences of teachers in a "progressive" English independent school, in particular with respect to what might loosely be termed job satisfaction. The paper suggests that these teachers have ideals and aspirations in common with many of their colleagues who teach in the state sector. The writers suggest that teachers in this sector enjoy their roles but express concerns about notions of accountability, autonomy and the significance of the school community that have resonance for many in the teaching profession at large as education enters another period of change.
