Teacher Policy: A Framework for Comparative Analysis
Tatto, Maria Teresa
Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, v38 n4 p487-508 Dec 2008
This article outlines a framework for analysis of teacher focused policy studies within an international and comparative perspective. Using the notion of the professional life cycle of teachers, the article examines examples of key empirical studies that illustrate the impact of policy on addressing such issues as teacher recruitment, education, selection, retention and development. The article concludes that the framework is useful in identifying the strengths and weaknesses in the conceptualization and design of teacher focused policy and studies, and gives recommendations for the design of rigorous studies to inform future policy in this area.
