Teacher Subcultures of Democratic Practice amidst the Oppression of Educational Reform
Friedman, Audrey A.; Galligan, Hugh T.; Albano, Caitlyn M.; O'Connor, Kathleen
Journal of Educational Change, v10 n4 p249-276 Nov 2009
Teachers' voices explore and document what is at stake when they are excluded from power-brokering conversations that mandate how teachers practice and model democracy in classrooms. Case study vignettes, interviews, classroom observations, and reflections of teachers in urban and suburban schools reveal four significant teacher subcultures of democratic practice: a subculture of compliance, a subculture of noncompliance, a subculture of subversion, and a subculture of democratic inquiry and practice. Analyses reveal that each subculture poses significant stakes for teachers, preservice teachers, the teaching profession, pupils, and society writ large.
